A Day At De Pier Scheveningen, Den Haag, Netherlands – Part 2: Art Sculptures!

During our nice sunny excursion to Scheveningen Beach in Den Haag we came upon the art sculptures that line the end of the boardwalk. I really enjoyed these because they all had a great sense of humor to them and made me smile and laugh. I hope you’ll enjoy the pictures I took of them as much as I enjoyed walking among them all.

A Day At De Pier Scheveningen, Den Haag, Netherlands – Part 1: Goofing At The Beach

Despite the fact that it was November and cold Matt and I had a great sunny day in Den Haag at Scheveningen Pier. Here are a bunch of pictures from our fun day there!

Crazy surfers heading out to  the North Sea for some fun.

If you notice in the picture above these surfers have some serious gear on. They are covered from head to toe in wet suit and even their hands and feet are totally covered. If you ask me that’s too much protection to be fun getting in that cold water but that’s just my opinion. 🙂

We didn’t see anyone do the bungy jumping off the pier but I just think it’s crazy. That’s all I’ve got to say. The pier was high to begin with and then people actually climb this tower thing and fling themselves off attached to a stretchy cord! This is not a new concept to me but it still elicits screams of “NO WAY!” from me every time!

Bungy jumping? I think NOT!

It was really chilly but we really did get an exceptionally sunny day to have some fun!

Beautiful day!
