Medemblik, Netherlands - LesleyBray

Liesbeth drove through the village of Opperdoes on our way from Twisk to Medemblik. I saw this georgeous house surrounded by water.

Opperdos is an old village in the Dutch province of North Holland. It has a certain fame for its local variety of potatoes, "Opperdoezer Ronde". In fact, the potatoes are so good that Liesbeth & Ed take a supply to Ed's Mum every weekend.
The exact age of the village of Opperdoes is hard to determine. The village used to be located very close to the sea, and the area has been flooded several times. Initial settlements seem to have been abandoned after the year 300, because of large floods.
