Cycling Around Dutch Polders

More than 50% of the Netherlands is reclaimed land,

low lying and protected by dikes which

often have cycle paths created on them.

Makes for great cycling and this is an account of one of those tours.

I had every weather condition thrown at me during this outing

from Spring Sunshine to a Winter storm:

  1. Good photos, Paula – good to see Holland >>> and aren’t those pollarded willows in the final shot, just like on the Somerset Levels – I can imagine that these two areas have things in common >>> but I wish the Levels had windmills! My favourites are the first one on the carousel, which looks very much like a painting; and the third one too – I love the toning. Adrian

    • Thank you, Adrian…Yes, I always liken the Levels to western part of the Netherlands…(the below water table part) , wouldn’t mind living in the levels if they didn’t flood so house is worth nothing! Living in a tree house springs to mind…pollarded!..Joking apart..I love the Somerset Levels..and it is on my (long) list to cycle along the Taunton Tow path some time soon.

Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
