Windy beach

There was a lot of windy weather along our coast between Christmas and New Year. Luckily the holiday resort where we were camping was very sheltered and we weren't effected that much. But when we headed down to the beach we knew that mother nature was blowing off some steam.

The one day the wind was extremely bad. It was blowing so much sea air onto the land in the distance that it actually looked like there was fog coming in. We wanted to go for a walk, but we got so sandblasted that we had to turn around.
There was a brave fisherman on the rocks trying his luck in the wind. I don't think he had much luck cause we saw him walk by later emptyhanded.

There was some joy in the wind though. A couple of kite surfers were getting ready to hit the water and you could see that the conditions were ideal for them.
