Day Three Hundred Forty-Six

Netherlands NL-721120 received 07-24-2011

Notes: Zeeland is the westermost province in the Netherlands, consisting of a number of islands.  The country of New Zealand was named for Zeeland.  The card doesn't have a caption that tells me what locations it shows, but with a little research, I was able to figure out that the lighthouse is the Breskens Lighthouse.  It is the oldest remaining cast-iron lighthouse in the Netherlands.  I was hoping to figure out where the drawbridge was as well, but apparently that is a typical Dutch drawbridge design, and there are a  number of them that looks similar.
