I do not know if you can spot the sheep in this photograph but as I saw it, it was as if the sheep was keeping an eye on this little boat.
Do not touch he seemed to say.
Not that one could ever reach it! lol
This is a great spot for a photo shoot, even if it s low tide.
All you need is some sun and typical Dutch clouds.
I just cannot stop pushing the camera button it seems ;-)
Noordpolderzijl got his name because of sluice from 1811. The sluice, also known in Dutch as "zijl" was the connection between the innerwater of the Noordpolder and the Wadden sea.
Because of heightening of the dike due to the new Delta-law, the sluice lost his function in 1980 and a new pumping station was built.
Standing in the polder you can still see the old sluice.
The artist J.H. Loon made an impressive stone mosaic in the dike body as a memento to the heightening of the dike.

Just love it when the boats are in. Without them it is as a painting with only colours and no figures.
Makes a nice reflection too, however, it can be quite hazardeous because you have to bend over the water to get such a picture. ;-)
This is my youngest playing in the mud...no matter what time of year or what weather we had when we visited Noordpolderzijl, our kids always had a good time and didn t wanna leave.
Fondest memory: Haha, once my middle child got her foot caught in the mud and franticly tried to free herself ... in which she eventually succeeded ... though her shoe almost got lost in the mud :-)
