Bathing Off Borneokade

This industrial-looking dock may look grey and forbidding in an August downpour in Amsterdam but the water was warm (18 degrees plus), clean and just slightly salty. It flows in from the North Sea and out into the Ijsselmeer

It’s the trendy designer quarter of Zeeburg about ten minutes around the back of the Centraal Station. A kind of showpiece for the best of contemporary Dutch urban architecture.

We were staying on that barge which provides very good bed and breakfast and a bigger swimming pool than any hotel I have ever stayed in.
