Sea of Tranquility

Callantsoog is on the North Sea coast of the North Holland province of the Netherlands. Much of North Holland lies below sea level, so the dunes you see (when you view the webcam) are largely manmade, to keep the sea at bay. My main memory of Callantsoog is having the most amazing fish’n’chips there – we Britishers are used to fish cooked in batter (i.e. stodge), but these fish were fried instead in the most amazing seasoning. Not a bad view while we were eating, either.

Is it any surprise we used to holiday here?

        1. We are maybe 30 minutes from the south coast of the UK. 45 minutes from a big ferry port. We always tended to go to Europe on vacation, I guess France mostly, and the 12-hour ferry crossing was always a perfect start.
