In one of our trips this holiday, we went to the IJsselmeer. To be more precise, at the dyke of the village of Stavoren in Friesland, Te Netherlands.
In the last part of our walk, on our way back to the car, we walked over the dyke and i took the time to let my kite fly, i attached the GoPro hero 6 black near my kite and then let the wind take over.
with the sun that was setting, it was a B-E-A-utiful pease of scenery.
The wind was good, and the temperature fine. all the things we need to take magnificent pictures
One thing is for sure, there is a lot of water in the lake…
How more the sun sets, the more difficult it is to take descent pictures. But even if the picture is a little blurry, it result in something nice.
Yesterday i’ve gone to the town of Moddergat, a small town near the Waddenzee.
Although is it is a very small town, it has a very big history.
Monument of the lost fishermen
This monument contains all the names of the fishermen that gone missing after a severe storm hit the fisherboats in the night of 5-6 march 1883.
83 people of the town died that night. The town build the monument in 1958 to remember the tragedy and the fishermen.
The Community of Paesens-Moddergat
Moddergat is a small town (in 2007 there lived around 230 people) it is part of the community Paesens-Moddergat. You can see both towns on the Photo. Moddergat is in front and paesens is a bit further away
The Waddenzee, the “big pool” on the other side of “de dijk” on diferent places, you can take one of the ferry’s and go to the different islands. one of that places is a little further away in Lauwersoog in Groningen
One of the things you can do is “Wadlopen”. This is walking around with a guid in the sand in the waddenzee when the watter is gone, on some places you can even walk to islands
An other thing they do is pumping up gas, they do it with a big drilling platform, on this cropped picture you can see it a little bit.
