Kom je buiten spelen? -> Come and play outdoors!

It turned out to be the good decision to go to the IJmeer. Showers and thunder, we had it all today. Protected in the southwest by Amsterdam and IJburg however, we hadn’t to fight with wind and waves on the IJmeer. Under threatening skies, with lots of rain and between the thunderstorms we paddled from Kaapkot to Blijburg (two of my favourite beach-pavilions/beach-clubs – the best Dutch beachclubs are on the inland?) to Burgerdam (dry picknick in the music-pavilion) and back to Kaapkot again. The appletart of Blijburg is an absolute recommendation!

The sandsculpture with the invitation to play outside is a piece of art on the beach of Blijburg. 8 paddlers accepted the invitation!

The pictures of the day are added to Mijnalbum – for day 2: scroll down to the rainy pics!

Hi Paul!
Glad you did enjoy it! It's a pitty I couldn't offer you the real salt water-feeling. But I suppose this trip was in its way also an unique experience!
