It's the calm before the storm. Here I am at my favourite spot in the #Scheveningen Haven looking into the harbour. The sky is filled with dots of clouds, no ripple in the water. Within two weeks this is where it all happens: Flag Day Scheveningen, or as we say in Dutch Vlaggetjesdag Scheveningen 2015.
