On the second day in Amsterdam we visited the Stedelijk Museum as covered by my previous post. After this we went and had lunch in Vondel Park. It is a beautiful open space with ornamental lakes, wild parrots and plenty of dog walkers.
On Friday Reiss took me to a stately home in East Grinstead called Standen. They had a wonderful Garden of Lights show on that was set to the theme of the Nutcracker. Although it could have been a bit larger I thoroughly enjoyed it and it has started to get me in a Christmas mood. The garden itself is wonderful and has a secret garden esqe feel to it. This is the first night shots I have taken, so was pleased to try something new.
