I spent three days visiting the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. My destination was the small village of Oostkapelle, about 3 km northeast of the well-known holiday village of Domburg. The weather was cold but friendly with lots of sunshine and light clouds. The wonderful sandy beaches with the photogenic breakwaters invited to long walks, always with my camera. 

On the way back the Zeeland bridge offered the suitable final motive for this journey. With a good 5 km it is the longest bridge of the Netherlands.
