Today the village of Noordwelle celebrates the traditional festival of Straô.
It is very pity that it rains continuous…
150 horses and riders go through the polder to the dunes and the beach; this is a very majestic view.
There the horses go into the sea to wash their legs.
When they come back into the village; they are welcomed by the music band and the Mayor.
Everything and everyone is very wet from the rain and very cold too….brrrr.
But in the cafe it is hot and there’s beer and something stronger…. ☺ ☺
