Scheveningen is a good example of a Dutch word I can not really say...I'm always too tempted to slur it all together. However, it is an amazing place to while away a few hours. Scheveningen is a small suburb of Den Haag on the North Sea coast with long sandy beaches, fantastic bars and restaurants along the beach front and a very cool pier. Pretty much much everything Brighton should be. We took a stroll along the beach enjoying the atmosphere and the people watching. It seemed like most of the population of Den Haag had come out to join us for the Sunday afernoon. We stopped for lunch at a slightly crazy but lovely cafe/bar decked out with oversized white and wicker funriture and lots of cushions all with sea views. We were particularly drawn to it for one reason though, and that was we had the opportunity to sit at a table with a blazing log fire in the middle of it. Very weird to have lunch next to a table top bonfire but much fun too. After we strolled along the pier then back up the promenade before starting on our journey to the comical town of Den Bosch.
