    This little brook used to be the lifeblood of this little village, around it s stream people settled and tried to have a living of the land.
    It is called "De Gave" which I would translate to "The gift".
    On the picture a view over what I think is the brook, by the look of it it has recently been excavated.

    A little village just somewhat to the west is Oostwold.
    It is real rural but there s a little growth in citizens lately.
    We once thought of moving there but the lack of cultural entertainment made us say no.

    On the picture is a statue which explains how Oostwold came to excistence.
    Monks once lived here as well, that helped too.

    Just somewhat more to the south, at the other side of the highway, is this nice lake.
    It is great to go there for a swim but do wear some kind of watershoes for the bottom is real yukky.

    Lots of folk have their second home here and stay here during summer.
