Coming back from Friesland: The closure dike & Hoorn
We woke up last Sunday with unpredicted rain...bleh, it didn't really make me very enthusiastic to get ready for a lot of visiting. Fortunately the rain would pass rather quickly.
This time we drove over the Closure Dike during day time but still in heavy clouds. We took a stop to profit a bit more from the view being at the 7,5m high 32km long dike, closing off the Wadden Sea from the created IJsselmeer (formerly a sea inlet).
Then we stopped at the Hoorn , a historic port at the IJsselmeer part of the Dutch East India Company.
