texts info panel Grevelingen

info panel at the shore of lake grevelingenWriting texts is something that I do at lightning speed. However, it may sometimes take a while before my work can be seen. The texts for this info panel that you can now find at the harbour of Den Osse (on the Dutch island of Schouwen-Duiveland) were written in May 2011. So was the German translation which was also provided by SBText.

Submerged text
Den Osse is quite a lovely place, but the real beauty here is to be found underwater in Lake Grevelingen. The panel contains some info on the creatures that live underwater as well so that you can now enjoy that aspect of the Grevelingen without getting your feet wet.
