Biking to the Beach

Approximately 7 km north from us is the town of Bunschoten-Spakenburg. It is a small town on what used to be the coast but because of land reclamation is now the southern bank of a "river" between the old land and the reclaimed area on the North. There is a beautiful old windmill and I am always impressed biking through the town how beautiful the houses are.

There is a small harbor with old fishing boats, and outside of town there is a small beach. We have biked to the beach twice now and the second time we rented kayaks and headed across the river to explore along the other side.
We'll be back with a later post on our visit to the cultural and fishing museum here in Spakenburg...
