Zeeland

Throwback to the May break: This was my first trip to Zeeland. I have been living in the Netherlands for 11 years and this was the first time I made it to this province. The views were breathtaking in Domburg. We survived a rainy three night stay at a run down Roompot there with our friends. The kids loved being all together.

The first half day it rained hard. We camped out at a lovely hotel cafe for 2+ hours. The kids were fine. You could feel the simple joy of being at cafe. People were happy just to be out and about. Eating at a restaurant now is like a luxury. The evenings blessed us with beautiful sunsets and dry weather. We would order dinner (complete with a bottle of white wine) and eat at the beach, eat, and watch the kids run in and out of the waves.

Flora was untamed. She was wild on the beach. Running in and out of the waves with her clothes on and then her underwear. Dancing in the sand with her friends. Just watching you run up and down the beach shouting with joy was the best moment of this trip. It’s amazing the power that nature can bring. Some fresh sea air, the sand in your toes, and sunshine is so therapeutic. It was a great trip.
