Those medievals were all for the harsh treatment. You broke a rule? Chained to the town hall you would be, if caught.
On the corner of the town hall you find this little place with even a step to stand on.
I wish I could remember what our guide told us some two years ago what happened exactly !
Well, many tourists still find their way here, but you surely shouldn't forget it if you are in Zeeland: the little town of Veere. This little pearl in Zeeland's crown used to be one of the most important towns in the province, which is prooved by many richly decorated building in the little place. The harbour is filled with yaughts and sailingboats, which makes a very pleasant view. The windmill, townhall, shipper's gate and tolhouse make a strawl along the water very pleasant.
This is the lower jaw bone of a whale. In the 17th and 18th century the people of Zeeland hunted for the Greenland whale.
You can find the bone along the harbour entrance.
We saw this tile in a green wooden garden door. Quite unusual. I had never seen this before. It shows a man on a horse with a lance.
I am so happy with my digital camera. I can get shots of things far away or high up quite close with it.
When you lie in the harbour you hear the bells of the town hall strike a tune every whole hour. It's a lovely light and complex sound.
Countless times before on my travel pages I have mentioned that I am a bell ringer. So here's another one for my collection!
