A little boat trip


Yesterday we went on a little boat trip in the ‘Schermer’. This is one of the polders, in the neighborhood of my hometown. It consists of a lot of little islands, surrounded with canals and ditches.

This picture was taken while standing on land. The next pics are from the boat, and as you can see, your eye is then on the same level as the land.

Because every single island is surrounded by reed, to prevend the soil from getting into the water, you get lovely sights.

A lot of these islands are used by the farmers to keep their cows and sheep on. They transport these animals by boat!
