#824 Tulips & Windmills-April 17

On April 17 we toured the windmills and water pump at Kinderdijk. The water pump is used to insure that the land is not inundated with water.



Locks. For boats and ships to navigate the waterways in Holland, as well as other rivers in Europe, there is a system of locks. It takes great skill to maneuver the ships/boats into and out of the locks. This series of photos shows some of the process. They can accommodate about six ships per opening. It was quite interesting to watch the process. At this time we began by waiting on the right side and then were moved to the left side of the lock. We were the first in and the first out. There were other ships/boats waiting on the other side.
