life in a small Town in Central Netherlands
Saturday, October 3, 2009
Just nature, not really just nature, it's human activity now only for the accommodation of nature. The water you see used to be a canal, part of a defence system of a fortified building, part of the so called water line. This was a defence system which would flood part of the country so alien armies could not progress to the states of Holland. The wood in the water used to be of the (walking) bridge to access the fortress. It is now a hangout spot for birds.
