The Netherlands – idyllic countryside

A typical Dutch scene made famous by children’s stories, mice and boys who stick their fingers in dykes to save the country. I found this reflection after driving through empty country roads  on a quiet, drizzling sunday morning. Then I found a few more windmills all built around the 18th Century and now restored. The Place is called Viergang Molens (The four Winmills) and is near Zevenhuizen in the Green Heart of the Netherlands. Other idyllic scenes here are from the Rotterdijk- a dyke with five residential windmills that have all had their sails removed.

The tiny canal  leads to the Rotter meeren (lakes) and flows to Rotterdam.
