Source: Along the river Vecht- NYTimes
“LESS than an hour’s drive south of Amsterdam is a region that seems a microcosm of the Dutch countryside. Enfolding the River Vecht in its north-south course between Vreeland and Maarssen, the region consists of centuries-old villages, expanses of flat and watery pasture land punctuated by windmills, castles and dozens of mansions built by Amsterdam merchants as weekend retreats during the 17th and 18th centuries. "

This year (2009-2010), the winter brought us a lot of snow, and with that came surprising views on the winter- polder land and it’s waters and rivers :) . The boathouse along the river Vecht, belonging to one of the great mansions, made for great scenery…
