  1. Plurals are a bit tricky in Dutch, Mark. Sometimes it’s -en, sometimes -s and very rarely something else still. In this case it’s ”strandbeesten”.

    1. And unless I’m mistaken, that’s the North Sea coast, probably somewhere in the Netherlands. Makes me a bit emotional. Clouds like those on a Vermeer painting. I trust you have an emotional connection with Washington’s Pacific coastline as well?

      1. I do love my home. Though I seldom get to the coast and my knowledge of the fault the lies offshore waiting to unleash devastation when it finally goes always clouds my time on the beach. But I love the Sound and live within a 10 minute drive of the shore.
