The sea also brought much prosperity, because the inhabitants of Egmond aan Zee earned their living mainly by fishing. They sailed the sea with the Pinck and bomschuiten, ship types that could be drawn easily on the beach.

In the beginning of the 20th century, with the advent of steam trawlers, attracted many Egmonders to IJmuiden and went to live there. Many do still think of the past fishing Egmond, such as the so-called fishermen's cottages and fishing monument.

Rest in the braincase

Oh jongens ik voel me sinds tijden weer een beetje chill en ontspannen 🙈 Het was écht lang geleden dat ik een avond uittrok voor Netflix of een boek en niet probeerde om 's avonds laat nog to do's af te vinken van een lijst waar geen einde aan kwam. A little awkward in the beginning, but I'm already noticing that the ideas are starting to flow nicely again and that I'm almost (I repeat: almost) zin heb in een tweede boek of bedrijf 🤣 Ik ben zelfs begonnen aan een wensenlijstje voor m'n verjaardag - and that is just the beginning of September 😅😆 Now, dan weet je wel dat je tijd over hebt 😉 Wat mag er niet ontbreken op m'n wishlist? 🤔

Spring ☀️🙋‍♀️
Oh guys this weather makes me happy. And how nice it is to be your own boss and determine your own working days and times. Om in de ochtend extra vroeg te beginnen of 's avonds een paar uurtjes door te knallen om in de middag optimaal van elke zonnestraal te genieten. Party!
This is a photo from last year by the way. Really looking forward to shooting some fresh pictures in the tulip fields around the corner soon. With drone 😍 and a little less blond hair. Have you been already?

The full moon rose last night. With stormy winds and a thick cloud cover, the prospects for a good photo didn't seem too positive.

Just a picture of the moon is kinda boring, that's why I always try to come up with a composition that includes the moon.

And that's how I ended up on the stormy beach at Egmond aan Zee.

Perseverance was rewarded, because it cleared up and the full moon was beautifully visible.

A little more about J.C.J van Speijk, what the lighthouse is named after:
This was Lieutenant Commander Jan van Speijk, who would rather fly into the air than surrender his ship to the Belgian enemy. He lit the stock of gunpowder on board the ship 5 February 1831. Except Van Speijk, also found 25 other crew members and a number of Belgians killed in the blast.
