Fresh breeze, smell of the sea and getting away from the busy city streets even for 3 days are for me a good inspiration and a already nice holidays. That's what I did at the end of March 2011 by going to the Belgian coast to De Haan city. Although I was raised and spent most of my youth in a city very close to the seaside, I haven't had much chance to see the sea often lately as I spent much time in Brussels (probably too much :) ).
Those 3 days were perfect for me not only for 'recharging my batteries' but also to get some photography inspiration - the fresh sea breeze can work its magic. The weather was perfect. It was a bit windy but taking under consideration that it was only the end of March and the very beginning of spring in Belgium, it was just perfect.
