Summer is a rare commodity in Holland, so now that the season is well and truly upon us, what better way to celebrate than a day at the beach?

We gathered a colorful cocktail of new and old friends and set off for a day of sun, sand and silliness. Chasing a frisbee, playing radical chess (I was utterly trounced, but saved my pride by managing to play to a draw with only my King) and making friends with strange dogs.

There’s no way we could have wished for more!
