This sluice lock is a passage between de river Vecht and de Loosdrechtse Plassen (populair water sport recreation area). If the boat is in the lock, the skipper can stay on board. The rest of the company can just get an ice cream or a drink. It gets busy in the summer!

Wijdemeren, the Netherlands. This wetland was strip-mined for peat, and is now dotted with vacation homes. These seem like short-term investments as sea level is expected to rise 2 meters in the next hundred years.

The island of Texel, the Netherlands was an important access and exit route for the ships from towns on the Zuiderzee. To protect this route, William of Orange took the initiative to construct the fort De Schans. De Schans was built around 1574. Fleet admiral Tromp regularly held councils of war here. In 1811, Napoleon paid a visit to De Schans, upon which he had the fort enlarged and reinforced with two adjoining forts.
