|Not a bad start to the day, no?|
We went to the tidal inlet known as 'De Slufter', one of the island's geological monuments, connected with the North Sea. During flood tides the area is submerged -- something which is definitely felt as you walk through the soft, wet land.
We found a spot high in the dunes that surround the area and feasted on the goodies that were in our pink picnic bag.
|Charcuterie, baguette, red wine...perfect!|
|Kirstie, with her jar of chocolate paste. Pastis wondering what was in it for him.|
|Local mustard seed cheese.|
|Quiet walk along the beach.|
|De Slufter. Wet, marshy and spectacular!|
|A happy pup admiring the ocean.|
|On the TESO, heading back to Den Helder, we were serenaded by masses of seagulls.|
