We went out for a stroll in our neighbourhood and saw that the work of replacing the streetlights in the old centre and harbour has made it to our neighbourhood. Someone got the bright idea to install old- fashioned street-lamps. I suppose that it is an action that is good for the local economy, but also they eye good...if one likes the old- fashioned look. The first foto is a very short stretch of footpath from the little bridge up to our dijk. This is the dike that our home straddles. The first three old houses there on the left are landmarks in our town. Here is a closer look at one of the lamps: These electrical imposters are in character for our old centrum which has structures built in the 14, 15 and 1600’s. We have had candles, oil, gas and now light bulbs. Just over the little bridge leading away from the quay where the people used to practice shooting bows and arrows, crossbows and later muskets. There is a little board showing the harbour and the water taxi with the stops it will take you to. One can travel from one place to another or charter a tourist trip with historical info over the sites you come by.
