Walk to Fort bij Spijkerboor, Thursday 5 May 2016

5th May was Liberation Day in the Netherlands, and a public holiday. The Fort at Spijkerboor, part of the Amsterdam Defence Line, was open for the day. It was a beautiful day. I took the morning to walk there, and met Abi and her parents for lunch and a tour of the fort.
