Noordpolderzijl is a hamlet in the Dutch province of Groningen. It is located in the municipality of Eemsmond, about 4 km northwest of Usquert.

Noordpolderzijl is named after the zijl (sluice) in the dyke of the Noordpolder. The original sluice was built in 1811, when the Noordpolder was made dry. The hamlet is located on the land side of the sluice. At the other side of the dyke is the harbour of Noordpolderzijl, which is the smallest seaport in the Netherlands. It usually houses two fishing boats.

For some reason I wanted to KAP over Dorkwerdersluis for a long time.
I gave it a go last week but I killed a spreader spar of my 78" rokkaku.

This time I went with the allmighty 7' ITW LD on a beautiful day.

I love the emptiness of this area.
No way that I could live here but it's a nice area.

This picture was taken by a camera rig attached to the kiteline.

A lovely but windy day and another friend came along.

Wikipedia:
Dorkwerd is a small village in Groningen, the Netherlands. It is located in the municipality of Groningen, about 4 km northwest of the city center.[1] Recent construction of new residential areas have brought the city to less than 500 meters from the village of Dorkwerd.
Dorkwerd is one of the smallest villages of Groningen, consisting of a church and a few farms.
According to the 19th century historian A.J. van der Aa, Dorkwerd (also written Dorkwert, Dorquert) consisted of 19 houses, with a population of almost 140. Most of the village was in the municipality of Hoogkerk, west of the Reitdiep canal, but two houses belonging to the village were east of the canal in Adorp. There was a small village school here, built in 1832.

Albert Harkema was a farmer who started to built small buildings in his garden.
After a pond and a small farm he started building his famous little church.
He died in 2011 but his legacy still draws a lot of visitors to his little buildings park.

The wind was awful.
Only the Fled could cut it.
But not very convincing.
