I am afraid the ocean will take the dike. Water and sky will be one.

heel indrukwekkende foto, mooi van eenvoud, hou ik erg van, jij blijkbaar ook:)

Toevallig (of niet eiegenlijk!) ook meer historishe foto's ( fotomuseum) geplaatst vandaag met wat summiere achtergrond gegevens.


We gaan 1 week naar Parijs, 'k heb als 'dank' een slideshow met foto's voor de blog'vrienden' gemaakt, dus ook voor jou, kijk en ik ben benieuwd wat je ervan vindt.

Eeen prettig en veilig weekend gewenst!:)

Hello again.
The storm didn`t cause any damage here either.
Not at my place.
We don`t have dikes here.

Andrée said...

how beautiful. Yellow flags?

Neva said...

What does a dike guard do exactly? nice photo.

RUTH said...

A beautiful photo...I love the relections of the Irises in the water. I hope the weather didn't affect you too badly.
Have a peaceful weekend

Dick said...

(Neva) Dike guards (500 were mobilized) give alarm as soon the situation becomes critical. The smallest leak is in no time a very large leak, prevention is the best thing to do. There were no problems now. See also the story of "Hans Brinker". http://www.thehollandring.com/hans-brinker-story.shtml

Neva said...

I was wondering if the stories are true about the little leaks and I see that they are....thanks for answering!....glad things are good now....All of my flowers-except a pot of geraniums I brought in-are gone...the iris looks lovely here.

dot said...

Nice picture! Those dikes really worry me so I'm glad we don't have to think about them here. Of course there are other things just as bad.
