This time determined to get to the pier and puzzled the shortest route. What a nice long drive along a river.
Left late at night so I would be there early in the morning.
Great cloudy sky, getting light. Continuous 4-5 bft. headwind, some showers. Wonderful. Standing on a kind of lookout hill near the waterkering.
Looking back from that same hill, taking a break, enjoying the sunrise and the wind.
Just read it will be test-closed 17 september. Good reason to drive HvH again, then.
Going down the hill greeted by the Rotterdam, going back to... Rotterdam. Me, not yet.
Yep, still on the right path.
Nice bikepath. The lighthouses remind me of the stupid poles they put in the middle of bikepaths - I nearly drove into one here in the dark.
There it is. What a sight. Crushing sounds of dead crabs under my wheels. The bike stank for weeks.
Sunrise between sky, water and rocks.
Some waves splashing over the edge but had to get to the end of course.
As far as you can get away from the coast.
Actually those concrete cubes go on for a few miles.
Wonder if anyone has climbed to THAT end.
The Maasvlakte sticks out a bit more, my next goal for sure.
... and odd place for a helipad.
What a sense of distance.
And it's only a mile or so. Could spend a whole day here sitting in a deckchair.
On the way back. A little kink in the river where the water recedes at low tide.
And a nice shot to conclude a nice tour.
