Leisure harbour

Many pleasure boats are moored in Scheveningen port. This part of the harbour is at the moment the centre of much attention, due to further expansion plans from the Town Hall detailed here that are creating many discussions, especially related to the proposed construction of two high towers as a flagship to the port entrance. The overall objective is to combine commercial, residential and recreational activities to attract more inhabitants and more tourists. The flats seen on the photo are part of the Havenkwartier, development project detailed on this page.

Look at that marina! Lovely thing to see. Summer is around the corner. :)

Lezard, you just left a comment on my blog (yes, I think pigeons exist in every city/town/village, they are the definition of ubiquitous, if you ask me.

Anyway, I wanted to let you know that the series starts today (not tomorrow). If you go back and click on the photo I published today (the equestrian monument in the Public Garden), it will take you to the first post of the new series.

I'd love to know what you think of it. :)

Fenix, no kidding! This is a small marina!! but it does give a wonderful feeling of being on holidays sometimes (when the sun is shining and you can sit on one of the terraces overlooking the harbour!

BTW I am at the same time leaving you a comment on your other blog (but why have you created a second one actually?)

I think that the sun in the photo might be deceiving, given the temperature right now.

I would hate to see the port become too crowded or too commercial ... it can be a nice change from the crowded strand!

Hey you were right by my house!

Re: the second blog, well, when I started my first blog I had no idea where I was going. Then I thought it'd be a good idea to do neighborhood series. Thing is, the blog format isn't that great for series, especially when you want people to have a feel for an area of a city, so I figured that it'd be a lot more effective to show a whole series in one post which could be read from top to bottom. That's a companion blog, you see. I will keep adding photos to it as revisit all the neighborhoods, but it probably won't be updated daily as my other blog.
