Around the corner - 14 June

The northeastern cape of Vlieland is locally referred to as the northeastern corner (Noordoosthoek) of the island. Walking along the beach from the bungalow takes you there in an hour or so, then it's a quick jaunt to the marina. On the way, a clear view is had of the neighbouring island of Terschelling, a few miles to the northeast. After the marina, we walked through the village and I called into the cemetery to photograph about 50 wargraves. These are mainly of aircrew, shot down in action during the Second World War, and those washed up following shipwrecks due to mines at sea during the war.
