First impressions of a new year

At first glance, I think this year will last
to make fine memories, cherished once,
when time that’s now, has sunk into the past.

We went for a walk and found this big empty bottle on a bench on top of the dune where we had this view over the Groene Strand with the white horse.

A few moments later we found a baby seal in the Kom, the quiet part of the harbour  near the beach (there were 2 of them) they were still alive and the one we stayed with till the rescuers came to prevent stray dogs from attacking it, was very healthy! Young seals can’t really take care of themselves in the sea, so they are transported to a rescue place on the mainland.

Photo’s made by my husband.
