We have not been to the Ocean City beach this summer (not yet!). We still remember our time there last summer (see “L” is for Long -- last summer’s beach blog). But we did get to the beach this summer. It was a new beach for us -- in the North Sea town of Büsum, Germany. We went with our friends from Berlin and we experienced beach in a different way. For the most part, the shore line in Büsum is rocky and the water is cold. Instead of a beach blanket to spread out on the sand, you sit in a beach basket often with a blanket. When you look out to the water, you are looking west – so you go to the Büsum beach to see the sunset in the evening, not the sunrise in the morning.
