It's just over a month now since we arrived back from our summer travels, and today at least, autumn has been showing its hand. Up to this point, though, we've had nothing to complain about weather wise. The rainy days have been few and often confined very conveniently to the night. We've been able to enjoy some lovely spells to help ease us into the shorter days and chillier nights.
During this time, various activities and events have kept us occupied, not least of which has been that I've had to go back to work. I started again on 4 September, just after Monumentendagen, the day when anything of a heritagyl flavour gets brought out, polished up and shown off to eager public eyes like ours.
On one of these days, Saturday it was, the first of the month, we came across this eye-catching collection of very beautiful old cars. Being English, I have a bit of a thing about motor racing, and classic sports cars get me going quite easily. I absolutely loved these, especially the MGA and the Austin Healey. The old Volvos were gorgeous too...well, they were all gorgeous to be honest. And I have a very special affection for old Beetles as well, so look at the photos and admire away.
|I can't remember what this was, but it's very oooh worthy|
|The oooh worthy from its profile|
|Wonderful old Volvos from the back|
|Very lust worthy too|
|And this Austin Healy was just it.|
|A stunning Cabrio Beetle|
|And a standard, gorgeous classic|
|Belgium at its best|
|Lovely barn house converted beautifully|
|An entire wheelhouse inside the barge|
|An incredible array of waterways equipment and old technology|
|Models, old photos, paintings, barge name-boards. It's all here|
|Diplomas of female crew|
|The Tordino has a long term mooring here, just beyond the safety lock|
between Beernem and Brugge
|The safety lock doors are behind the barge|
|Local history about the ferry boat community that lived here|
Have a good week allemaal and I'll hopefully have some brighter news to tell you soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the autumn if you are in north and the spring if you're in the south. May it rain plenty of sun on you wherever you are.
