Spring in Rijswijk, Gelderland, Netherlands - 2365

Spring in Rijswijk, Gelderland, Netherlands - 2365

Today was a wonderful sunny spring day, so on the bike for a beautiful trip of 56 kilometers.
Rijswijk is a village in the Dutch province of Gelderland. It is a part of the municipality of Buren, and lies about 9 km north of Tiel.
The oldest mention of the name occurs in a 9th-century charter. The name is derived from the old Dutch word "wich" that means settlement and "ris" that means loot, branch or twig. Here perhaps in the sense of wickerwork.
Here you see old dike houses, if you live on the right you are lucky with high tide, on the left you have wet feet with extremely high tide.
