I don't know why this came into my mind, but today I just realized how much I miss the Sea!
As I've been a little girl we went almost every year to the Netherlands to make some holidays at the seaside.
Den Heldern - this was the place we have been so often.
We had to drive about 3 1/2 hours by car to this city.
I loved it.
Walking over the dunes, what was always a bit exhausting. :) But smelling the wonderful clear and fresh air that came from the North Sea.
We had lonely hours at the beach, where almost anyone was there.
We went for walks, enjoyed the air and the sound of the waves.
I especially loved the storm, when the waves grew higher and higher. And the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, which I watched from time to time.
And on hot summer days we went for swimming, fighting against little crayfishs :o) and just lay down for sunbathing.
Mostly I do remember how many shells I collected.
Every different form and colour caught my attention and I had to get it up from the ground.
I miss those days. I really really do. And it makes it even more worse as I have no idea whenever I have got the chance to do something like that again.
I just want a wonderful day at the beach, collecting shells, cuddling in my shirt, listening to the sounds of the waves and the air, just taking a deep breath.
