A fishing pink hauled up on the beach in a fresh breeze on the Dutch coast
A fishing pink is shown hauled up on a beach on the Dutch coast. In the right foreground the pink has been hauled up on a roller just clear of the water's edge. The sail is hoisted halfway up the mast to provide some shade in the boat. There is one man in the boat and another standing on the shore leaning over and into the boat. Further up the beach one man sits on a roller with his back to the viewer as he talks to a fisherman facing him and pointing towards the boats at sea with his right hand. Just beyond the pink is a groyne running down into the water, On the left a pink with the sail lowered is pushing off from the shore with several people on board. The discarded roller on the beach is probably associated with this small boat. A man is wading ashore from this pink while at the water's edge a man is carrying another man on his shoulders towards the pink. In the centre middle-distance off the end of the groyne is a States yacht standing out from the shore. She has a flag at the masthead and a flag and pendant at the peak. Crossing her bow is a smalschip. In the left background at anchor is a ship with another ship beyond her. There is land showing in the centre distance.
