It starts calm, me hiding for the wind, sitting on the basalt breakwater/dam/jetty that protects the harbour for the sea / 5 km wide river Schelde in Holland. The gate to North Sea and the main port of Antwerp.
View from breakwater to river Schelde Holland

A little boy is looking for mussels on the waterline of the dike. It's slippery and grandma looks worried, but does not complain.
Father and child play with a steerable kite.
Slowly the passengers ferry Princes Maxima come into the harbour. At the same time the waves. It is so strange and it is the same often, just for ten minutes, the high waves are the coming out of the blue, just because the water starts rising for an hour. Whatever, it sounds great.
Later this recording a helicopter.
And the call of the Arctic Tern and the seagull sometimes.

location: breakwater / dam, Harbour Vlissingen sea-side (see geotag. Holland (The Netherlands).
