Today Grandpa, Grandma, Jackie and Brooklyn took the train up to Utrecht.
In Utrecht, the canals are lower at basement/cellar level, which makes for some great outdoor restaurant dining at the water level 

We ate lunch at Stadskasteel Oudaen, a restaurant and brewery in a former medieval castle (the tall brick building on the left)
