We went to the beach in the afternoon, with a friend and her two dogs.
The day was a typical Dutch gray day, but it was fun, nonetheless, waking on the sand, seeing the dogs run and play.
At some point I turned around and saw the dark storm cloud but I thought we’ll make it back to the car in time.
I have heard people say the rain comes down sideways in the Netherlands. And as the rain came down, I know what they mean.
Big fat water drops came down hard and fast, directly into my eyes and ears. We found shelter next to a screen wall, a few cm taller than Marinus,with no canopy or roof whatsoever. If we stood next to the wall, we were dry!
It didn’t look like it would stop anytime soon, but it did get a bit lighter and we made our way back to the car like a group of wet, bedraggled chickens. Still a fun adventure though!
Be kind. Stay safe.
