Photographer's Note

Weesp,in the north of the Netherlands is a very nice old little city with beautiful restored old houses and farms,windmills and lift-bridges over the river Vecht.

The Roman historian Tacitus tell us that in the first century,a Roman fleet sailed due north down a Rhine branch, then sailed past lake Flevo (now the Markermeer and IJselmeer lakes)into the North Sea; since river IJsel was not yet connected to the Rhine in those days,it is assumed they sailed on the river Vecht.

Many pleasure yachts sailing on the river,sometimes it look like a naval review!
