A walk by the sea

I attended an Open workshop at Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin which rises high above the shore in Noordwijk aan Zee.

The season starts in May and lasts to September, and then all the hotels are fully booked. But now it was different. I managed to go for a walk during daytime, but even then there were few people on the shore.

This is quite a place. I was overwhelmed with the scenery, and it was almost impossible to focus on anything, there was so much to see. Here are some impressions of the sea during the first day.

That looks like a great place Juha. I was born and raised in Nova Scotia and always preferred to go to the beach at this time of year. The wind off the North Atlantic is cold but the solitude of kilometers of empty beach is wonderful.

@Brian: Here it wasn't so cold, in fact warmer that in Finland despite the wind, but of course far from the temperature for swimming. Someone said the sea was +9 °C, and the air was about +15 °C during the day.
