"Buut'n Aam - Outer Harbour"

Coming from the Noordoostpolder (road N331) you can't miss this scenic entrance view of Vollenhove
On the skyline you notice two churches - Maria (Kleine Kerk) and St. Nicolaas (Boven or Grote Kerk)
in front the 'Outer harbour' - in our dialect known as "Buut'n Aam" (Buitenhaven)
check also my previous "New Years" cards - 1996, 1997, etc..... for more details
