Mr Monkey looked upstream towards old Nieuwpoort and began to worry if it was a little too far for them to walk before eating. A little later he met De poolreiziger (the Polar Explorer) which shows the Nieuwpoort-born polar explorer Dixie Dansercoer exploring the poles. It was made by Freddy Cappon, and unveiled in 2007 when Dixie set off for the South Pole to recreate the journeys of Adrien de Gerlache at the end of the 19th century.
You can see what Dixie Dansercoer is doing at the Circles website and about Adrien de Gerlache at the South-Pole.com website.
