Thoroughly Dutch

IMG_3117

For this weekend I thought I’d present you a thoroughly Dutch picture: a canal, a wooden bridge and two cyclists.

This photo was taken in ‘De Weerribben’, a national park in the northern part of the country where we spent some days last week. It is a peculiar landscape totally man-made during the 20th century when peat cutting was done here profusely in order to provide the country with fuel. In that way a pattern of alternating stripes of waterways and stripes of land came into being.

In the next few weeks I will show you some more photos of this interesting park. So stay tuned…
