September 21, 2011 Zierikzee to Dordrecht

Highlights of today's journey...
A rare "photo op" stop by Albert, seagulls helping with the potato harvest, was actually pretty cool.

These caissons (hollow concrete floating blocks) were originally used in the D-Day landings in Normandy. They were reused to in the 1953 floods to reinforce the dykes. The museum (not open) is located inside the caissons.

We spent our coffee break checking out a local super market...dutch chocolate, beer and Magnum bars were purchased.

Village of Willemstad, as seen from above, was the home to William of Orange.
He was the main leader of the Dutch revolt against the Spanish
that set off the Eighty Years War.

Dordretch, the oldest city in Holland, was a pleasant surprise.
