Delta

Today we looked at some of the dams and storm surge barriers associated with the Delta Plan. This plan was set in place after the disastrous flood of 1953. Our excursion included stops at the Eastern Schelde barrier, Brouwersdam, Haringvliet sluce complex and the Maeslantkering. We ended the day with the offer of a free smoked eel sandwich on the island of Marken.
