Scheveningen Pier

Monday morning greeted us with dreary gray drizzle, but it wasn't cold or windy so we headed out to new adventures. Ellie really enjoys riding the tram, so we took Tram 9 to Scheveningen. That's Dutch for "the beach" (no, not really; that's the name of the town that has the popular beach here). Try saying it 5 times fast. What a word. Yow. Anyway...
We took the tram to Scheveningen to stroll the length of the landmark pier opposite the landmark Kurhaus hotel. The pier is glassed in and covered, so we kept out of the rain and did something different. Unfortunately, there wasn't much to see on that gray morning, but at least we got out of the house. The view from the end of the pier back to the beach and hotel looks like this:

Not bad.

Oh, how funny that you guys decided to do a rainy beach day, too!! Sea Life was fun, but too short. We were through it in 45 minutes, I think. Maybe an hour.

And I'm glad to hear you are finding some baby food recipes for your new babycook. ;-)

Enjoy your last two weeks in Holland!!!!
