Ascent Trip Report

Parked near the camping area, as usually at the coastal areas, here you also have to pay for all the days, but only after 9am, so arrived on time :)
Zeeland is my favourite place on Earth, cannot return back enought times! As the map wanted, now went to the southwestern coast, but same structure as of the northern part: cyclist/horse trails, the big dam row, climbable through stairs, the bushy ridge, then the view of the sea and the coast. Had low tied so took a walk deep into the basin, collected some shells for the kids, could see lots of jellyfish in the water so didn't go in too far. It was early morning, just some joggers and dog walkers, dutch, german, french people. Before chasing the next high points, I returned to Domburg, Oostkapelle and Middelburg to visit our key places (engagement at northern coast in 2014, honeymoon 2 years later). Glad that nothing much changed, this place is beautiful as is. The only missing point that souvenir shops could focus on more locally specific items, instead of generic or not related (far eastern motives) ones. Hope this will change next time. Also visited the dams with the wind turbines (seagulls all along the roads, don't drive fast)
