Love Rock

Somehow I have a hard time understanding people who feel the need to carve their names (added by a date and/or a heart, or 'I was here' for instance) on trees or benches, or write on rocks, or wherever. On this boulder however everyone is invited to "Write down the name of your beloved on this stone".
Well..feel welcome! :)

You can find this stone when you park your car near the lighthouse on the northern tip of Texel, and then walk to the entrance of the beach. Apparently it's also a kind of memorial stone, as the last line is "For Louise van der Sluis, 24 November 2010".

  1. This is very interesting. Perhaps it will stop people carving their initials on a tree or graffiti in other places. At a local school there was a large shed next to the sports ground where students were encouraged to write on it whatever they wanted. It was allowed for a whole school year, and then painted over for the next one.

  3. En dan moeten mensen ook nog op het bordje hun naam kalken alsof de steen niet groot genoeg is of hun naam niet goed te zien is...

  4. Better to have a designated spot like this than on a poor old tree trunk 😊
