This is a post for Sepia Saturday 146.
I’m late this week because we’ve been a long weekend out. I’ve picked 3 photos to share with you.

Once a year Scheveningen celebrates Vlaggetjesdag//Flags Feast, to start the herring season.
This feast was dated on the Saturday before Pentecost and the most important event (for me) on that day was the short cruise with fishing boats along the shore. If you were lucky, you was allowed to come on board and enjoy the cruise.

That little girl is me. I know my Dad is on this ship too, but he is not visible on this photo. I don’t remember the other people.

This photo shows Scheveningen Harbour on Flags Feast 1956. You can see all the big and small flags decorating the ships.
