Scheveningen








Saturday we went to the Noord Sea at Scheveningen. We were blessed by a sunny day, though it was windy and cold on the beach. We loved collecting seashells and watching the kite surfers. The pier was nice, as you could walk farther out onto the ocean. The bottom of the pier is enclosed and has shops inside and the top is open air. We climbed to the top of the tower and the view was amazing, though very windy and cold! We also ate at a restaurant on the beach and went to an aquairum. Scheveningen is the beach town of Den Haag, which is the capital city of the Netherlands. We only drove through, but the town is beautiful. It is also a very crowded city. While driving on the motorway, you drive under buildings. It's very strange, but the architecture is really modern and neat. So different from anything I've seen in the States.
