Scheveningen is a small yet very beautiful little fisherman's town... it is part of Den Haag but a paradise of it's own. It's quiet peacefulness was it's main allure to me. As we strolled up the beach toward the tiny little town... Alex shared with me about the anguish in the hearts of the fisherman's wives as their husbands would go off to sea... some never to return home. It touched me profoundly that in this Dutchman's world it was the woman's heart that was honored with a statue in this dreamland.
As the wife looks out over the sea watching for her husbands return...
Scheveningen calls out for mine.
