Lego - canal boat trip + inner court yards

On Saturday afternoon we were obliged to sit at some terraces for some drinks while waiting for Kabouter to have his nap as we didn't want to join our planned canal boat tour while he was asleep. (and he really needed this nap but we'd have to wake him up in order to board the boat).   Life can be tough ;).
On our way to the boat, we made a stop in the flagship downtown LEGO store where they clearly have toys that interest all ages :p. 

Then we boarded on a stereotypical tourist canal boat tour which brought us again along some of the monuments we had seen already a couple of times (Opera, Library, Palace and little mermaid, the "Dutch canals" at Christianshaven etc...)  but also toured further and passed some very nice residential waterside properties!
Kabouter was very pleased with the many bridges we toured under :p.

Before returning with tired feet to the hotel, we zigzagged through the Christianborg palace neighbourhood  (the former old royal palaces...often destroyed & rebuilt).  There was a nice view at the buildings at the royal stables parade ground but a bit further is a true little gem sortwhat hidden inner court yard. A true oasis of tranquility and beauty surrounded by the busy commercial city center.
