After the winter weather ten days ago, we now get very warm weather for this period in February, even two days in a row day record since 1860 start of the measurements. (+19° CELSIUS)

DAMME, pleasant bicycle trip of 30 km middle of the nice nature 12 km of the North Sea.

Reason for this Platheule creek.

To regulate drainage, the entire area was divided into communities or waterways. The residents of a watering jointly contributed to the costs of removing the water from their area. The following waterings were created: the Watering van Moerkerke, large 4700, built in Moerkerke, Damme and Sijsele; the Oude Watering van Lapscheure large 3190, built in Lapscheure; the Watering van den Broek large 1854, built in St-Kruis and Damme; the Maldegemse Polder large 1212 built in Moerkerke; Stampershoek large 665 built in St-Catherine outside Damme.
Where these waterings perched along the Zandstreek, and also where they butted together without dykes present, sideways were constructed to prevent water from another watering or from the Zandstreek from entering its own watering.

I hope you like it
