A quiet evening on the Dutch sandy coast in May.
Westduin strand
It all starts very calm. The waves are 100 meters from me. At the end, just before the altitude, the water has reached 50 meters closer.
When the sound recording begins, it is already dark. Except my wife and I, there is no man on the beach anymore. We enjoy the view. In the distance, at 8 km, we see the lights of the city of Cadzand in Belgium.
Enjoy the relaxing sound of the rising tide while falling asleep.

Right before us, at 500 meters the fairway for vessels. Hear the marine engines above the sound of the waves (see time table).
