    The town hall and the birds

    Veere was an important harbour at the 17th century. Within the fortified walls the city counted 750 houses, reduced today at the number of nearly 300.
    On jan 2007 the village counted about 1627 inhabitants. On my picture you will see a lot of birds, if you count them as usual inhabitants, make it the tripple account. LOL

    Zee (Sea) and Land = watersports

    Dipping Czech girls in the waves.

    Zeeland, as already told, land of the sea. So make sure you visit the sea as here are endless sandy beaches that provide excellent sunbathing and swimming (besides all other forms of watersport). On several places the dunes form the natural protection against the water, but are also a delicate natural landscape for lovely strawls. My favorit beach is the somewhat silent one near Burgh Haamstede's lighthouse. So, if you're in Zeeland, make sure you visit both 'Zee' (sea) and 'Land'.
