From Amsterdam it's only 15 minutes by car to go to Volendam the village on the former Zuiderzee.
It's cold out there too, a few boat are frozen in the harbour.

The book " Vissersdorp van 1880-1940" show paintings done in the village during the period 1880-1940 and shows how it has been before.
Two figures in brons on the dike are another memory of the past.

On the way back to Amsterdam at the end of a nice nostalgic visit, the Amsterdam outline is surrounded by bright red and yellow colors.
