For the next stop I made it easy. I asked my son Bram to choose the next stop. The watch will continue it’s travel to Eire (Ireland).
The traveling watch is a G-8000 that replaced the lost G-2210. This version is called Front Flipper in Germany. A pretty interesting model. I think a regular article will show up in the future on 50 Gs.
I live in Middelburg and was born I Vlissingen (Flushing). Middelburg and Vlissingen are the main cities on the former island of Walcheren. Don’t think about big metropoles here when the word city falls.I served my military service in a "small village" on the Veluwe. I almost never heard of it before I was sent there. This small village had a population of only 40.000 people... Both Vlissingen and Middelburg now have a population of around 40000 people.
Besides Middelburg and Vlissingen, there are more pittoresque places on the Island. Veere is one of those places. It was first the place where the ferry to Campen (drowned) and later to Kamperland on North Beveland departed. Therefore the original name of the city is Campvere (Ferry to Camp). After the dam was built to North Beveland, the ferry was not longer needed and also the harbour lost it's function. Nowadays it is an important recreational harbour. The pittoresque city centre, now housing many little shops, was once populated by a large Scottish community. The small city has only a small population. The harbor and the market are now full of small cosy shops. You can find pretty special things here. Souvenirs, clothing, old Dutch toys, kitchenware and candy. I often buy some very special chocolate there. Around the small city there are old fortified defensive constructions.
You can spend a good time at one of the teracces in Veere. Not only tourists visit this small town, people of Walcheren like to visit this town too from time to time. As you can see, time flies when you have a good time.
Domburg, Oostkapelle and Zoutelande are also beautiful places to visit. German tourist often believe Domburg must be our capital city. The forest around the castle Westhove near Oostkapelle is a loved place to visit around the whole year. This castle was founded in the 13th century. It was property of the Abbey of Middelburg, the abbots used it as a summer residence .
