    As we drew nearer and turned into the Ruigt on our left we had a better view of the Shamrock and the work being done.

      this aeria was also for reed production and willow trees.
      the used those willows for makeing the mats for under the dykes as fundation.
      now they use there nylon mats for,and reed is out.
      other parts of the world maybe still harvast it,but not from the ''Biesbosch'' anymore.
      they are now digging canals in the park,to get the floods as fast as possible to the lower parts as storage.

              I hadn't thought of reed production, and am glad to be reminded that reed and willow mats were once used as foundation for the dykes - I had forgotten that. But I imagine that using nylon for the dyke mats has been done for some time now and reed soon regrows if not checked. So it seems as if that patch has been left for grasses to colonise.
              Reed is being used much more again now in Norfolk, where it grows extensively in the Broads, for there has been a surge of interest amongst young people in learning thatching. Watching a thatcher at work is fascinating. I must find you some pretty thatched cottages to see in August.

                          making the turn at point 8
                          looking back



                          the yellow lines are the line of sight to the bridges.
                          there are 3 bridges,a railroad,a high speed railway and the highway.

                            taken at point 9 we'll go around the corner with the yellow line.



                            at 10, another look through spot for the 3 bridges.
