Since I missed both of the last two challenge’s  I  toyed with the idea of trying to portray the immense challenges I am facing on monumental levels that have carried me virtually over the threshold and into the next dimension, something like the Martix. However, based on private information I would then make public, which would serve no purpose other than make it worse. I have decided to remember the delightful day Godfried and I spent at Van Zanvoort ann Zee” by the Sea” It was a spectacular day! The wind was whipping, the temperature fluctuated wildly and the rain came in droves and them left us with a marvelous sunset. The world positioned itself outside a fabulous restaurant call De Haven directly on the Sea, which served what they call a ” High Wine ” > SURPISE! < Like a high Tea BUT there was no Tea but three selections of wine and the most  FABULOUS CHEESE TRAY, served in a dimensional presentation all for 17.50 Euros each. We sat here mesmerized for 3 hours of bliss. To me this was a refuge without stress and with the man I love but cannot see at the moment. I hope you enjoy the photos as intended. I am taking a hiatus from WP to work out the fucked up aspects of my life. I shall return soon and hugs to you. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE : )

I have to give the Restaurant a shout out because it was superb and the prices and presentation were unbelievable!!! ( not to mention the view)

Swept in and then out in less than an hour !

One of the things I liked the most about The Nederlands in general is the endearing and highly creative method in which to re-use bits and pieces of nature, white washed twigs and branches and sticks. SO EASY!! I saw this trend many places and I loved it and will do it here in the USA. ( maybe ) Marvelous !

After we were gastronomically and visually satiated, we wandered through the tiny empty and WONDERFUL town of waiting for the onset of the tourists , all in all a delightful day!!! It’s fun to pretend you have no problems on vacation!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street view from a tiny eye.

Ese your challenge came at a time when I need to look inside at what makes me authentic. The trifecta is in this photo. Outside, at sunset with a camera is where I am feeling the most inspiration ! Thanks!
