Anne Frank's Steeple
I can't tell you how many pics I have taken of the Westerkerk (West Church)
that sits on the Prinsengracht canal not far from our apartment.
I chose this particular view for two reasons: Anne Frank saw only this much of the clock tower when she viewed it from her little hide-away during WWII. When we went through the Anne Frank House
9 years ago, I recall reading that seeing this tower through her attic window and hearing the clock chiming was a source of great comfort for her.
Secondly, though I have several pics of the church without any other structures around it, I wanted you to see how smack-dab in the middle of the canal ring this church is. And since I just showed the bell gable in yesterday's post (across the canal from the Anne Frank House), here's another one!
