skating in 1781

On the fifth of this month , in the morning at half past six , two Noordwijkers , by the name of Jan Vlieland  and Leendert Plug went on skates from Noordwijk to Scheveningen by sea.and arrived there at eight o'çlock.
This is so unique that even the oldest people never seen or heard of this before.
Because the ice is normally , even in the hardest of winters impossible .
And the beach so uneven and rough, but now smooth, as possibly never before ever happened.
