Tour Of The Atlantic Wall Continued

Below are two more pictures from the Nazi propaganda filmstrip Der Atlantik Wall.  After the windmill in the last posting, there were a few more (apparently) scenic snapshots like the one below before the images starting showing military subjects. 
Once again, I can only assume these locations are in Holland based on the windmill shown in the previous post.  Anyone who recognizes any of these places as we go along, please contact me, and let me know what we are seeing.  As I said in the last post, this filmstrip was apparently part one of several, so it may have just focused on Holland (assuming that is the location).  Below is the first shot of a military subject:  a German soldier patrolling a beach strung with barbwire.

Can you tell me what the exact title is of that filmstrip, so what you can read on the first or second frame.

The title of the filmstrip appears to be "Wehrhaffes Europa - Der Atlantik Wall" which a German friend of mine translated as "Resistant Europe - The Atlantic Wall."
