Never the same: the Oosterschelde National Park
Written by: Fransje Meijer
Strolling towards to the dike, I wonder what surprises await me at its foot today? There’s bound to be something new. What does the Oosterschelde have in store for me? I can sense that it’s low tide, with the briny tang of the mudflats coating my nostrils, on the wings of a bit of a breeze. When I get up on the dike, will the waves be wearing their white caps? Only one way to find out.
Quite a climb that was! Take deep, slow, breaths. Take in that first view of the sea: it's always different, shaped by the dynamics of the tide and the wind, and the ever-unfurling sky.
