Photowalk: ‘The Slufter’, Texel

My boyfriend and I were at the Dutch island Texel during the Christmas holidays. My parents didn’t have the energy to see the whole family together and my boyfriend wanted a change to what we do every year, so we took this opportunity to get away ourselves, just the two of us. We both love the beach and both haven’t been to Texel for a long time (last time I was there I was a teenager) it’s a at doable distance from Amsterdam where we live, so the choice was easily made. I badly wanted to see ‘ De Slufter’, the National Park Dunes of Texel. Last time I was there it was Summer and I vaguely remember a hot afternoon walking in the dunes which were stretched out far into the horizon. It all seemed very different now.

Stricly speaking, The Slufter is the name for the creek/creeks that flow across the area (the Plains of the Slufter), but nowadays people use the word to indicate the area.
