... a 122 mtr tall pure brick structure with some very impressive detail and is the second largest of its kind in Europe. Of course there is also the obligatory windmills, yes that is also a Belgium thing.

In closing all we can say is thank you to these men for allowing us the freedom we have ...
... the canal, our host Lynn, armed us with self directed tours and we headed off to do the Bruges, Proud World Hertiage walk. It's quite a warm day so it was lovely to sit by the canal side and just watch. Everywhere you look in this city it is postcard perfect. The Old Town is built around the Grote Markt in the centre, dating back to the 10th century, with row upon row of tall, narrow, ornate buildings, once homes, that are ...
