Beach Patrol…

During our tour of some of the fire stations around the Maasvlakte, Little Mr let out an excited exclamation having spotted vehicles from the Reddingsbrigade (beach rescue/lifeguards) doing an early morning Beach patrol. It was a Saturday, and the weather very warm so we were a little surprised to see so comparatively few people enjoying the beaches. We wondered if kids sports teams, swimming lessons, or parents working may have something to do with it.

Maybe some of the other beaches were just quicker and easier to get to, and of course many people go away from cities or abroad for the summer holidays. Although we saw, plenty of other people as we toured around the roads were empty and it seems like the beaches were too. Still nice to know that the Lifeguard service were keeping a good eye on things in the area.
