Cycling in Noord-Holland, in Castricum



Castricum is a small place in the north of Holland. Like in our surroundings there is no arable farming either here. There are cattle farmers here and sheep farms. The sea is close by and a line of dunes serve as a natural protection against the North Sea. Between the dunes and the village is woodland.

This is a lovely series of photos. The sheep look particularly well-behaved.
