Sorry , I'm gone fishin'...Ilpendam is a village in the Dutch province of North Holland. It is a part of the municipality of Waterland. Ilpendam have arisen in the 12th centuries. A dam was built in the little river the Ilp which explains its name. Ilpendam is such lovely small town where all people still greet you. Walkers on the dike or fishermen enjoy their free Sunday morning. Still a little morning fog above the small river the Ilp.
