Veere, not that far from Yerseke, is the most charming city in Zeeland (NL). Typical Dutch houses adorn the cobble stone streets, the Grote Kerk towers above the trees and the many terraces are an ideal spot for people watching. There’s plenty to see here and you will discover it all this blog post.
We started our day on the lake. We (my mom, dad, sister and I) sailed over the Veerse Meer, a lagoon separated from the North Sea only by a dam, and enjoyed the many beautiful views over the fields, campsites and small towns on the banks. It was really sunny outside that day, so I stayed safely below deck most of the “ride” to avoid a severe sunburn. Thanks to the giant open windows of the boat, I still managed to capture some lovely moments on the water. After the boat tour, we strolled aimlessly around town in search for a bite to eat. I got all snappy-happy around the beautiful yachts lined up to leave the port, spotted my dream car, ate “kibbelingen”, went into the funniest gift shop and had the most delicious ice cream. It was again a very good day out in The Netherlands and I hope to visit Veere again soon! For this season, however, it seems this will have been my last visit with our Northern neighbors. Our planned trips to Middelburg and Goes have been cancelled due to the endless rainfall of the last three weeks. Fall has come, and I wasn’t ready for it yet. My vacation photos restore a little of the summer feeling that I have lost, but that will hopefully return for at least a few days in September. Have a great weekend guys and please enjoy the photos!
