An attempt to create more variety along the normally straight banks of the North Sea Channel. Costed a lot of money. However, no maintenance is done because of cutback.
Maiden flight of my Triton during a hazy day with Bft 3 and less. I like this -very stable- kite, although it sometimes has the tendency to overfly and it has more rope than I would like.

The "Zeehuis" was build in 1908 as an orphanage. Here, a lot of Amsterdam orphans experienced the pleasures of the sea, dunes and woods, in most cases for the first time in their lives.
In 1959 the house was bought by an association called NIVON. Members (and non-members) can book a stay here for a reasonable amount. No food is served, you are supposed to make your own meal in a fully equiped, common kitchen.

Part of the former arms- and ammunition plant of the Defence Line of Amsterdam. This Defence Line ('Stelling van Amsterdam' in Dutch) is a 135 km long circular defence at 15-20 km around the capital Amsterdam which was built by the Ministry of War mostly between about 1881 and 1914.
During the First World War 8.500 people earned a living here (at the cost of the life of others). After the world wars the factory also produced a.o. car parts, agricultural machines and lathe's. The trees are planted in case of an accident and shockwaves. The factory closed in 2003. The factory grounds are still strictly forbidden to enter without special permission. Most buildings here are industrial monuments now. Today an art gallery is established in the former factory office in the foreground.

The Netherlands-Bakkum-Noord
Late afternoon view on Zeerijdtsdijkje, a relatively intact inner dune border fed by seepage water from the nearby younger and higher dunes. The aim of land manager Landschap Noord-Holland was to renovate this area -a part of the so called Clean Water Valley- by improving the flow of the seepage. And also by creating a more natural water management; the water being held in wintertime, as a buffer for the increasingly frequent summer droughts. Furthermore the overmanured upper soil layer was excavated in favor of the poor soil underneath and thus in favor of rare plant species and biodiversity as a whole. The area is accessible for walkers, but not during the breeding season. The name of this area refers to an old, modest dike that was dug off long ago. What remained is a grassy path, not visible on this picture. Image made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes
