The crashing of Lancaster bomber W4888

Crossing a cycle bridge outside Workum we saw this sign commemorating the crash site of a British Lancaster bomber on 4th May 1943. You can read about the incident here.

Sculptures in Den Oever

image

At first I thought these poles lined up for the benefit of sailors out on the North Sea (perhaps to help them navigate to the harbour). A sign advises however,  that they are designed to line up with the setting sun on the Summer solstice.

The North Sea

It was looking grand today, a touch cote d’azure in fact.

The 1970s

image

Sometimes when travelling to a different place you have the feeling of going back in time.

Royal Tat

image
So the Windsor family aren’t the only royals of Europe selling tacky merchandise - the current/soon-to-be-ex queen of the Netherlands is Beatrix, while the pepermints feature her grandmother. Queen Wilhelmina abdicated in 1948 in favour of her daughter Juliana, who in turn abdicated in 1980 in favour of Beatrix.
