    TAKING PRECAUTIONS

    volendam

    A lot of the houses along the shoreline sit low behind the road which acts as a dam, to protect the buildings from any flooding. I just love all these typiclally Dutch looking houses with the gabled roofs and such. So much nicer than the plain "boxes" that make up the houses where I live!

    In the summer you can sail on the IJsselmeer or take a boat trip to Marken.
    In some cold winters the IJsselmeer will freeze over and you can do some ice skating.
