Smilde (Drenthe) - Hasselt (Overijsel)
Niveaumeting (level measuring)
All locks of the Drentsche Hoofdvaart -the waterway we were cruising on last week- have this device installed, up- as well as down-stream of it. The water-level in each pond is automatically checked this way. ‘Niet aanmeren’ is meant to avoid…
Niet aanmeren (no mooring)
…wrecking the device by a careless boater, throwing a rope or using a boat-hook. Therefore: don’t touch! Next to each lock a back-pump installation starts working as soon as the ‘niveaumeting’ indicates a level that’s too low. See the next short (27 seconds) video.
Taking care of the water-level
Thatched roofs – apart from the thatcher’s house
When at primary school every child in The Netherlands learns about the Hunebedden (multiple form of Hunebed) in the province of Drenthe. Us too – some years back we must admit. We never had seen a hunebed in its actual state, so now was the time: we were near to some and both of us surely had a bike in working order. Hunebed D53 was entirely demolished by the Germans during WWII because they planned to construct an airfield on that spot. The smaller D54 was spared because it was buried under…
…sand and thus kept away from the German eyes. The hunebedden date from some 5.000 years back and are part of the Funnelbeaker Culture (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funnelbeaker_culture). There’s a lot more to tell about it, self-evidently. The ones among you that are eager to know more, see https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunebed (Dutch), https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolmen, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolmen or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chamber_tomb.

Jaja, 't schiet op. Maar rustig aan, want de Nijkerkersluis is nog een paar dagen geblokkeerd. (En een 'Vollenhove' zal ik -als ik er aan toe kom- een n toevoegen...)
