Bergen to den Berg

This day was one of our longer rides and we rode into a head wind most of the day. Here we look at Dutch engineering, to protect their coastline from erosion it is lined with rock and concrete securing the dike against pounding waves.
Riding behind the dike we are partly protected from the winds.
A modern windmill.
Winding our way...
to catch the ferry...
to Texel Island.
The ferry is wonderfully designed for bicycles....the bike path loads right onto the ferry and connects to the bike path on Texel island.
A headless Dutchman in his wooden shoes :).
Arriving in den Berg.
