A trip out to sea at IJMuiden

We're back again to OH and I's recent holiday to the Netherlands. When we were in Holland we spent the day with OH's dad who lives close to Amsterdam. He took us for a trip up to IJMuiden (pronounced Iron Maiden) for a tour of the port up there. It's a huge port at the mouth of the Amsterdam canal and North Sea. Despite being an industrial landscape the sky was a clear blue and the tour even included a short trip out into the North Sea. Here is what we saw: 
 First up a quick couple of shots from OH's dad's home which depicts a typical Dutch landscape. So tranquil
Certainly wasn't the obvious choice for a day out but it certainly made a change from the usual tourist track in Amsterdam and the weather made it a perfect day.
