On the 29th of February Mini en Micro Adventure explored the Zandmotor.
Between March 2011 and October 2011, Rijkswaterstaat and the provincial authority of Zuid-Holland created the hook-shaped peninsula. It extends 1 km into the sea and is 2 km wide where it joins the shore. Trailing suction hopper dredgers picked up the sand ten clicks off the coast and took it to the right place. The construction of the Sand Motor was completed in November 2011. Now, the forces of nature will take over and spread the sand along the shore, thereby reinforcing the coastline and creating a dynamic area for nature and recreational purposes.
We hoped to see some wildlife like seadogs.
We saw only a seadog bopping his head up in the sea.
But we found enough other wildlife or was it wilddead.
Mini adventure have the strange habit to making photo’s from the remains of dead animals and shouting on the same time “WOW Creepy!!!”.
