A Day, at the Beach, in The Hague:

The Hague really is a wonderful city. And with each subsequent visit, its beauty and history (and its beach!) I appreciate just a bit more. The city is grand in a way that Amsterdam is not–and I'm convinced this is due to its role as the seat of the government of the Netherlands. The Binnenhof is there, and Queen Beatrix lives there, too! But The Hague (capital T), even with all its understated-yet-grand beauty, will never have a place in my heart, in the way that my beloved Amsterdam does–and always will. But then again, it does have a beach.
