In an overpopulated country, this view can afford a troubled and overworked mind the oppurtunity to appreciate a simple, yet non-the-less, breathtaking glimpse of the wonderous world we habitate. We don't have mountains, we don't have canyons, we don't have lush vegetation, here in The Lowlands. But what we do have is the North Sea, which embraces an extended coastal line overlapped by multitudes of plants. Shrubs, trees, and wild flowers, serve to bind together this natural habitat. Not only does this gift the eye with splendid vistas to digest, more importantly, it is this countries dominant landmark, without which, half of this humble country would be engulfed in the North Sea's frigid salty waters.
