Next stop, a city called Enkhuizen, not very far from here, only 15 minutes by car. I used to go to the High School in Enkhuizen. Our main aim was to catch the ferry to the Zuiserzee Museum, a good way to see the harbour and the marinas there. The Zuiderzee did not exist for very long. Originally it was a small lake with several creeks. The lake became larger and larger. At the end of the thirteenth century,storm tides caused enormous breaches in the surrounding land and the Zuiderzee was born. By the 19th century, people were eager to replace this dangerous stretch of water so in 1918 they decided that the Zuiderzee had to go.
First they build a long dyke between Noord Holland and Friesland which was completed in 1932
The whole day was very interesting.
