The mighty wings of the mill!
In the center of the town you find this windmill. On occasions it still works as a mill.
On certain days of the year you can go up into to the mill. May be it is possible on request, I don't know. Look at their site to find out!
Seeing the ships go by!
On the Willem Alexander Bridge you can see the ships pass from Rotterdam harbour to the German Ruhrgebiet and back!
The river Waal a main extension of the river Rhine floats along our area!
If I get on a boat here I could sail all the way to Basel, Switzerland on the rier Rhine.
Many ships go by each hour of the day! I can watch this for hours!
