Pond of memories

This pond was build in World War II in the dunes nearby IJmuiden in The Netherlands. Build as a tank-trap against the German army wich were able to enter the Dutch borders by sea.
After 65 years, nature has taken this pond and made it into a breathless place to be.
This pond of memories has a history we all wan't to forget as soon as possible... but sometimes it's good to have a second-tought at this point...

    It looks like a peaceful place - even if the unhappy history! Thank you for sharing this history around it!
