Earlier this month we left Blake in doggy daycare as soon as they opened and then we set off for Folkestone and the Eurotunnel to France. We hadn't done that since November 2014! It was nice to have a day out together, although we spent more time in the car than we did at our final destination which was Bruges in Belgium.
I have to admit it was somewhat bittersweet, being in France/Belgium again. I wonder what travelling there will be like in future, will it be as easy and straightforward as it is now? But I was glad to be back in the European mainland. :-)
Anyway. Here are some pictures from the day. Bruges is a pretty city, even in winter when it is cold. And despite all the tourists. Although, once you get away from the main square, it's actually pretty quiet. Getting a bit lost in the side streets where the actual Belgians live their regular lives. :-)
We spent way too much money on little wooden ornaments. ;-)
I always have to stop and look at the lace. It is beautiful and it reminds me of my grandmother who used to do bobbin lace.
Always remember to look up!
I think this is my favourite picture from the day. I like these unassuming houses...
