Picnic site along the cycling path from Oude Waalsdorperweg to Meijendel.
One of the most attractive features of The Hague are its dune areas north and west of the city.
Most of it is for recreation, water purification and nature conservation.
However the days when one could freely roam the dunes have long gone.
Conservation and water purification cannot withstand the population pressure of a city, so large parts are no-go areas for the common visitor.
Hence this picnic spot is cosily positioned in between the cycling path and a line of barbed wire.
In the mean time the original somewhat Spartan and basic wooden benches and table have been replaced by relatively more luxurious ones.
As you can see in the last three, more recent pictures, table and benches are now sported by weathering steel, designed in a postmodern style with the trademark toad of the water treatment company.
It leaves its logo everywhere, like a dog pissing in every corner.
