A saturday morning Kindermarket(children market)in Maassluis If you look at the water in the canal it looks like you can walk on it ,but it is all naturel.That's the way some of the canals look like. Let;s hope nobody falls in .
What a surprise to go for a walk outside of Maassluisand find these beautiful Wetlands with a variety of Birds.
Also there was a horse riding club.The horses and their riders were beautiful to watch.
