Nederland - Egmond aan Zee

Nederland - Egmond aan Zee
Egmond aan Zee is the best-known of the three ‘Egmond villages’: Egmond aan Zee, Egmond-Binnen, Egmond a/d Hoef. Egmond aan Zee was formed in the coastal dunes in 977. “The sea gives, the sea takes” is an old popular saying in the fishing community. During heavy storms houses often disappeared into the sea and in November 1741 the sea not only took away 36 houses, but also the church and its tower.

Apart from being dangerous, the sea also provided the people of Egmond food and work, as most inhabitants of Egmond were fishermen. Quite a few sights in Egmond remind one of this; for instance, the "fishermen-houses", which are tiny houses near the sea where fishermen used to live.

Since the beginning of the 20th century Egmond aan Zee has been a popular seaside resort. The village is well-known for its healthy and clear sea air. Children from big cities came to stay in one of the many “colony houses” which were sanatorium-like institutions often run by charities and churches.

Egmond has a sandy beach that stretches for about three miles. The beach of Egmond is perfect for sunbathing and swimming in summer and invites you to take a stroll in spring, autumn or even winter.

We visited Egmond aan Zee on a crisp winter's day with a freezing wind, snow-covered dunes and frozen seawater.

A beautiful beach.............I like the silhouetted fence posts and their shadows and the tiny figures out walking. I like the photos in the PiPs too Jaap...........especially the 2nd one, which demonstrates exactly how cold it is there, despite the sunshine!

A super series!

Absolutely beautiful, I am impressed to see the snow-capped dunes in the PiP. I suppose it must have been really ice cold for the seawater to freeze despite its salinity...

Loved this series, Jaap! The fence in the main image is dramatic and immediately had me thinking of a fence on the beach that Steve and I encountered on our travels which blocked off dunes where endangered Plovers were nesting. Reading your description rocketed me right back to the series I read from Call the Midwife--one dealt directly with the workhouses but there were mentions throughout all of the books and the stories were simply wrenching. The fence reminded me of how these people were so often treated as prisoners once they entered these places. What started as sometimes a gesture to help the poor ended up being the stuff of nightmares and the terror of the elderly...

I loved your insets too! Great pictures of the beach and WOW it was COLD!!! YIKES! Still, a lovely place for a stroll and for those crazy enough to stand freezing, hoping for fish!

(The pictures I was thinking about are on the second row of the insets and I chatted about the area in the text: www.ipernity.com/doc/290645/50158366 )
