Belgium:

 

Oostende


The "Seacat" that runs between Dover and Oostende.

We went for a half day trip to Oostende (East End), which is about 15 minutes (by train) away from Brugge, on the coast. Oostende is a fishing village/town with sea links to England using "Seacats" and hovercraft.

The sea breeze at Oostende was very refreshing.

 

 

 


We walked along a long wooden jetty saw multi-storey buildings built next to the sea going way down the coast.

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


Some of the fishing boats and nets. This is one of my best photographs from the trip.

Some amazing 'floating' figures above a garden.

We came across this sculpture and building while wandering around the town centre.

 

 

Detail:


There is another figure lying down under the water jets.

 

 

 

 


This is a fabulous gothic church that seems a little extravagant for a community of such a relatively small size.

 

 

 

 

Looking at the same gothic church, but from one side.
