A bit of a wander

I went for a bit of a wander, and these are some of the photos. 

The canals have lots of little carvings around them - this is one of my current favorites.  The trees are all on the turn now and really lovely, and it is getting really quite cold.  I wandered all the way back to the centraal museum in fact, and went for a wander right into the church of St Nicholas, which is really pretty, and then into the museum for more cake.  After the cake, I sat and sketched the Utrecht Ship (it's a viking cargo ship - they were even more impressive as traders than as raiders, but that doesn't make nearly such a good story!) for a while.  It's not my best ever sketch, but I think I'm getting less awful.

I also found a whole room I'd missed out last time.  It was all mostly still lives and landscapes with cows, and had a Van Gogh painting of some pears.  If you like paintings of cows and pears, this might be the place for you.  If not, then I might stick to the other bits of the museum and the more famous, less fruity Van Goghs in Amsterdam!
