Our last full day we took the train to Enkhuizen to go to the Zuider Zee museum.  The entry to it from the station is via a ferry across the old sea harbour, now a inland marina on a fresh water lake.

The Zuider Zee museum is a hands on open air museum recreating the life of the polders etc.  When you cycle camp the theory is "wash one, wear one", so here is Ceri-Si‚n proudly standing under her hand washing!

Ceri-Si‚n undertaking another hands on activity.  Making a clog boat.  I noticed the locals cheated and took the bits home to finish off - not Ceri!

Farwell to the Netherlands. The view of Hoek van Holland Haven from the back of the ferry.  Before the channel tunnel the station used see trains to all parts of northern Europe with through coaches to Copenhagen and Moscow.  Now only a train to Rotterdam and Amsterdam connect with the ferry.
