Summer impressions at the beach 1
Children playing Wassenaarseslag

It's late in the afternoon, the Sun begins to make its decent. This causes the water to shimmer with light, and when looking at figures in the direction of the Sun one is only able to see the silhouettes of the figures.

I can never get tired of this view, especially around this time of the day. Thank God Leo the owner of the beach cafe De Fuut, keeps refreshing every year that warm cadmium yellow paint characteristic of his cafe. I always get a kick from painting those Strandbeesten from Theo Janssen!
