Marken - Anyone likes rain, cold and windy weather ?

Rain, wind and cold were the ingedrients of my short spring break in the province of North-Holland.
According to meteorological statistics, the month of May in this region was still not the worst month.
However nobody in Belgium and the Netherlands remembers to have ever experienced a colder or wetter month of May.

The picture is taken in Marken, a peninsula in the Markermeer (Marker Lake) , the southern part of the Ijsselmeer (Ijssel Lake) . The former island is nowadays connected to the mainland by a causeway.

On the pic you see the lighthouse with the name ‘Paard van Marken’ (‘Horse of Marken’) . It’s a national heritage site of the Netherlands since 1970.

You can walk around the peninsula on the dikes that protect it. See second picture in the workshop.
