Scheveningen Beach

While we were in The Hague, we hopped on a tram and went to the seaside in Scheveningen which is a district of The Hague. I have always lived near to water, in Scotland, Spain, Greece and Switzerland. The waters ranged from seas, lakes and rivers even though I am not a swimmer I like to see and smell water.
So we were all pleased about going to see the beach, walk on the sand and maybe even paddle (my father the bravest).  We only walked along a part of the beach, there are 4 beaches and from far off we could see sand dunes. It was a windy day but the sun was out and there were plenty of people enjoying themselves. I have to say that the buildings on the esplanade and the pier looked quite unattractive, there are plenty of bars and cafes. As we walked on we saw that there is some kind of redevelopment going on and then we came upon this lovely lighthouse.
We were aiming to go to the port and stop for a coffee but we came to the wrong part of the port and did not see anywhere to sit down. So we hopped back in the centre and found a cafe there and enjoyed a well deserved rest with cake and coffee.
