Following the old sea dike in Zaanstad. This water is situated next to the dike and is what we call a "braak". It is a relic from a horrible North Sea storm tide on Christmasnight 1717, when this dike breached. In the Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia 14.000 people lost their lives. A lot of cattle was lost and all that caused economical decline.
