Rockanje, South Holland.

 

For our last week we moved closer to the Hook of Holland and the ferry departure date, Rockanje, about 20 mile south of the Hook. Another site with Deer, goats, rabbits, ponies the works so it was very quiet until the peacock struck a chord !

Once again loads to see and do right on the North Sea coastline so would return if the ferry over was ever late over.

Right where next………..

Greeted to this Dutch goal scorer near the site, I asked the owner if that was for when Holland scored, he said we haven’t qualified ! Doh!! I blagged it saying I was a rugby man myself !

Saw loads of these bags hanging from flag poles, found out that when you finish school for the last time you chuck your bag on a flag pole ?
