Zaanse Schans & Marken

Bert in the Amsterdam countryside

Bert in the Amsterdam countryside

Before leaving Amsterdam
Bert has one more day
To explore the countryside
There’s no time to delay!

Bert jumps on a bus
And it drives over the hills
Headed to Zaanse Schans
Where he can see the Windmills!

Zaanse Schans

Zaanse Schans

Eight large mills
Their sails turn with ease
The lands here are low
With a constant breeze

One creates peanut oil
Bert takes the tour
It’s incredible inside!
Of that, you can be sure

The entire wooden structure
Moving as one machine
Watching it work
Is quite a sight to be seen

Bert loves the view!

Bert loves the view!

So pretty!

So pretty!

Very cool Windmills

Very cool Windmills

Beautiful

Beautiful

Bert loves Zaanse Schans!

Bert loves Zaanse Schans!

Bert loves the view
The Windmills are stunning
But he must catch a boat
So he’d better get running!

To cruise down the river
Bert takes the ferry
He’s off to the town of Marken
Where the people are oh so merry!

Bert is delighted
When he sees their next stop
They’re going to a Clog Maker!
He can’t wait to see the shop!

Farmers in Amsterdam
Still wear clogs to this day
In the marshy low lands
It keeps their feet dry in every way

Bert puts on a pair
And tries to walk to the street
But that’s kind of hard
When you don’t have any feet

Bert in clogs!

Bert loved Amsterdam!
But it’s time to go home
He must plan his next adventure!
There’s many more countries to roam

Bert had a blast in Amsterdam!
