The former Nazi Germany WW2 mini submarine base. In the autumn of 1940 the Germans started building Schnellbootbunker I (SBB I) at the IJmuiden port. There was room for 11 S-boote under a thick concrete roofing. In 1943 it was expanded with Schnellbootbunker II (SBB II) with 14 pens and 4 maintenance docks. Its roofing was appx 5m thick and there was enough room to host appx 1000 kriegsmarine personnel. In september 1944 construction works were ceased because of many bombardments. The first Seehund type XXVII minisub dispatched to IJmuiden in the Nehterlands in december 1944 followed by another 18 by the end of that month. After the war SBB I was torn apart expet of its foundations. SBB II remained intact and is currently an Industrial utility building.

I am thankful first

I am thankful first and foremost for my family! Truly blessed to have the siblings I have and the best mother in the woSld.recond, two amazing nieces that I am able to see all the time and spoil. Third, I am thankful for the opportunities that have opened up for me, leading me to meeting new people and experiences.I am thankful for the friends, whom despite being many distances away, still keep in touch.I am thankful for the basics, a home, health, and food on the table. I don’t think people are appreciative enough of these three things now days.
