Zeewolde - Ketelhaven
It took us three nights before deciding to leave Biddinghuizen. Even an extra morning, as we left not earlier than 12:04PM. On the way there’s more of the same -not at all meaning that it’s boring, on the contrary- so we look at things worth mentioning. One item was this double deck train, traveling from Zwolle to Lelystad. (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NS_VIRM.) Their capacity is amazing! And necessary at the same time, as we experienced last winter. It’s no exception when a train is ‘sold out’, meaning several passengers only can travel just standing up.
Another one was this diving board, simply erected on the bank of de Hoge Vaart. No house visible in the wide surroundings! When seeing something indistinct, off white, pointing from the bank from a distance there’s only one question: ‘what could that be?’ Well, it was something completely unexpected: a diving board. What else? The canal-water is very clear, by the way. We are permanently able to see the bottom – and large fish sometimes, too.
The farmers are lately confronted with a shortage of natural rain. No problem for them, they pump it out of the canal into their own dammed (not: damned) ditch. Luckily there’s still sufficient water left in the canal!
Thereafter they distribute the water, using ‘water-cannons’, where it’s needed. Huge wide, long, hoses on an equally huge reel (no picture, unfortunately, forgotten when looking at them in awe) move up and down next to the ditch. A simple and effective system.

Dank je wel, Tineke! We zien mekaar hopelijk snel in A'foort.
Jaja, 't schiet op. Maar rustig aan, want de Nijkerkersluis is nog een paar dagen geblokkeerd. (En een 'Vollenhove' zal ik -als ik er aan toe kom- een n toevoegen...)
