September 9 Saturday - exploring nearer to home

Akerendam in Beverwijk
The Church of St. Agatha in Beverwijk
The Kasteel Assumburg in Heemskerk


Akerendam

Akerendam, in Beverwijk, was originally a wealthy businessman's mansion, then a residence for elderly ladies, now a historic site.  Yes, that's a moat around the whole building.

       

This dog stood at the back entrance until one of the docents came out to give him a cookie.  Then he left.

Garden and tea shop.
