Ice and -skating at Kinderdijk

Kinderdijk is the worldfamous place where a lot of ancient windmills are grouped and saved. In winter its a fantastic place to ice-skate but in the Netherlands most years its impossible to do because of the warm winters. This year is different :-).

Some strange ice-fun too. Someone has rebuilt his litlle brother’s skelter with “skates” and mounted a prop on it… its said he can reach about 100km/h with it (but he didn’t..too many skaters) And a very old slaigh.. just as it was when the windmills had to pump the water out of the polder behind. (1600-1800 and later but then steam- and later diesel- or gaspumps did the work)
