Goede dag from the NetherlandsA nature park near Sintjohannesga in Friesland
We have been to Douwepolle. It is a nature park close to our village, approximately 3 kilometres. We went in a boat over the water. We came on a swamp field. The park ranger told something about the swamp. Do you go to the woods or somewhere else, once in a while?
We must also make questions, looking how warm the water might be ... How many animals live in the water... Emails from Sintjohannesga
Our town/village is called sint-jut. There live about 1000 people.
There are 2 schools, They are named: de Schakel en de Trieme. The last one is our school. We have 4 sportclubs in our village: gymnastics, soccer, tennis, volleyball. In the centre there is a shop. You can buy all kinds of groceries over there. There is a mill. The mill was pumping water away. Our village is close by the biggest lake of the Netherlands. I will send a few fotos in this message.
The biggest town in the neighbourhood is Heerenveen. They have a fantastic soccer team. They play in the European-league. They defeated an Israeli team (Maccabi Petach Tikva).
