... rush over the beach. Nevertheless, it's a great experience that really shows the forces of nature at play. Like with the coastway shots, these are a few samples of the beach - the purple sand is a nice one though :-)
After an hour or so at the beach we're getting hungry and we know the restaurant at Deetjens closes early so we move on to Deetjen's. Deetjen's is located ...
