Look at those waves!
We hopped on the tram today to visit the beach and resort area of Scheveningen On the Zider Zee (North Sea). It was a very windy day and the waves were just wild. We immediately pulled off the shoes and headed for the sand and sea. We saw many adventurous kite ? surfers out on the water. The wind was so powerful we marvelled at how they could hang on to those kites and were not airborne!

After our paddle in the sea we wandered up to the promenade and wandered along the oceanside. ? Lots of open air cafes and there was also a casino. ? A Ferris wheel on a pier over the ocean. Such a windy day, we didn't want to chance it. Many people were out strolling in the sunshine and enjoying the day, the ocean and the fresh air. We stopped in one of the cafes for a nice meal and then found a great shopping mall to meander through as well, where we made a few purchases.

By then, time was getting on so we made our way to the tram and made the return to our flat. A nice relaxing ? afternoon
