Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
This is one of my favorite places in Zeeland: the Veerse Meer.
According to Wikipedia,
The Veerse Meer (Lake Veere) is a lagoon in the province of Zeeland, the Netherlands. It was separated from the North Sea in 1961 by the Delta Works dam system. It is 22 km long, and 1,500 m wide in places. Lying between the old islands of Noord-Beveland, Zuid-Beveland and Walcheren, it is linked to the river Scheldt by the Zandkreekdam lock, which allows this lagoon to have brackish water, slightly less salty than sea water. There are 13 small uninhabited islands in the lake. Some of its banks, underwater at high tide, have been made into nature reserves, while others are popular for water sports, such as sailing.
We first drove to Breezand – which you can see on the map – to enjoy the view on the lake.
