The beach at Zeeland, the Netherlands

The following pictures at shot at the beach between West-Kapelle and Vlissingen at the Northsea, in the province of Zeeland, the Netherlands, during winter.
Enjoy!

01. People live close to the dunes, which protects the land against the sea


02.


03. Small-time fishermen


04. The belltower of Zoutelande, a small village located close to the dunes


05. Windmill in the back, church in the front


06. People are not allowed to walk trough the dunes to get to the beach because that would seriously destroy this natural protection against the sea. Instead, people use wooden stairs.


07.


08. These rows of wooden poles prevents the sea from taking away too much sand from the beach. They are called 'golfbrekers'.


09. Unmanned lighthouse


10. Looking for shells


11. A small mussel, which can be found along the 'golfbrekers'


12.


13.


14.


15. Mussels and shelves along the golfbrekers


16


17. Golfbrekers


18. Scroll down to the right to see Vlissingen, a small city at the sea!


19. Monument at the pier of Vlissingen


20. The boulevard of Vlissingen


21. The old 'skyline' of Vlissingen


22. One of the local marketplaces


23. Not too busy at the moment...


24. Modern architecture leans everywhere


25.


26. Sunset from one of the dunes


27. Golfbrekers


28. The pier of West-Kapelle


29. West-Kapelle panoramic. Local ordinances say that every building must have a red roof


30. Another sunset...


31. Horserider along the seashore


32. Tide is over


33. Majestic clouds end this serie of pictures, thanks for looking!

Excellent photos Bob.
I was not aware that the dutch had any beaches. They are a well kept secret. Very nice scenery and looked like uncrowded places to walk.
Many beaches here in Florida also have ordinances against "picking the sea oats" to protect the natural barrier sand dunes from blowing away.

I have never seen a beach with so much shells! Amazing.
