View from under!


Here is my second post on the Scheveningse pier, from under the structure. Low tide, the concrete pillars are colored with mud. On the background you can see the "bungy" tower (300 steps up, and down) from where I made yesterday's post. From there in the summer you can experience a 60 meter jump into the Northsea.... Nothing for me!

Update: Fenix from Boston was wondering how come they can leave the tower open in the winter.... I looked at the pier website and found out that the access to the tower is allowed to everyone above 5 years old, and that it is safe to go up there as all security barriers are in place to prevent any accident....

I meant to ask yesterday, how come the tower remains open to the public during the winter? Here I don't think they'd let people climb a tower off season.

Fenix, sorry, I did not understand your question yesterday! I updated the post. But yes, the tower remains open and freely accessible to anybody who feels like going up the 300 stairs!

No, no. When I said "I meant to ask," it was in the sense "I was going to ask." But thanks so much for updating the post with that info, which makes it clear, once again, that here, in North America, we are treated like total idiots! I am amazed we can still freely walk on bridges and ride escalators.

;D

Interesting perspective and it's nice that you caught the tower to the right as well.
To answer your question: No, public toilets in Ystad is not cleaner than anywhere else. You wonder if people behave the same at home?

What about Bungy jumping? It is surprising to see another use of the word 'bungy'. Glad you like woollen blankets etc. Feather doonas or polyester donnas are very warm but how do you keep them from slipping off the bed!
