Tulips in The Netherlands?

Another day of exploring the Netherlands!  We want to take advantage of the rental car so we decided to again flip a coin and today that coin said to go to see the Tulips!  The Netherlands is known for their flowers.  In fact, iamsterdam.com says that the Netherlands accounts for 70% of the worlds commercial flower output.  So off we went to Keukenhof flower garden in Lisse.  Probably not the best day to make this adventure as it was raining and we were a little early in the season and there were very few tulips at the tulip garden (as noted below) but we always go where the coin tells us.

Easter


With all of the activity happening this week we decided to take it easy and sleep in.  The big accomplishment today was to head outside the city center to FoodHallen food court on public transportation.  They really have it dialed in here.  Even I can figure it out.  Thank goodness everything is visual because if I had to rely on street names I would NEVER get anywhere.  In this picture, the street monitor is blurry, but that doesn’t matter because as the names show up in the picture is how they show up in my mind…..blurry.
