Antwerp and Blankenberge, Belgium
Antwerp has a Grote Martk that looks very similar to Brugge, rows of really neat old buildings and a nearby church.
The museum had great views of the whole city. To bad it was a rainy day because the views should have been fabulous.
We came across a large farmers market. Everything looked good. Sure hope we find a lot of these when we are in the Sprinter. I love buying fresh local food rather then shopping in a grocery store.
Bicycles are everywhere. You have to watch to be sure you don't walk in the bike lanes on the sidewalks.
We came across a vintage car rally. The cars were registering for the rally that started in a few days and ended in Italy.
Every since we saw locks of love in Cinque Terre, we seem to see them everywhere. Here is Antwerp's version.
Blankenberge was a surprise to us. This is a popular seaside town with a great beach.
The beach front walkway is lined with high rises and sidewalk cafes on one side and concessions on the beach.
or areas for the whole family to enjoy themselves.
There were tons of individual cabanas too. Looked pretty good, no lugging all your chairs, toys, etc every time you go to the beach.
We took a long walk from Blankenberge to Zeebrugge to see where we need to be to pick up the Sprinter tomorrow. The van was offloaded yesterday from one of these ships. Can't wait to get on the road.
