HUMBER BRIDGE...

Thursday 16th March 2017. One, on the road. So, the long awaited day is here, we leave for the Continent. Great anticipation! We drive to Hull in the afternoon, for the overnight-ferry to Zeebrugge in Belgium. Our days are fully booked already with friends old and new. At some point, the road goes under the famous Humber bridge, as you see here. Come along for the ride? Enjoy.

Les DUNES BLONDES de MA JEUNESSE...

Helmet or lyme grass (Ammophila arenaria), also known as dune grass, is a perennial plant belonging to the grass family (Poaceae). It is a pioneer plant that is important in the formation of dunes. The plant produces long rhizomes and where these rhizomes to come into contact with light, it creates a new shoot. To capture the sand seawall on the coast of Belgium, they planted helmet. The meter long roots of the plant search the depths of the freshwater line which is a few meters below the dune, but above the salt water in the sand. The plant protects itself against salt water through a symbiotic relationship with a special mould to its roots, which regulates water and salt supply to the plant.

OSTEND in the DISTANT MIST…

Ostend is a sea-side resort on the Belgian Coast. Also a fishing and yachting harbour with lovely blond beaches. Something for all. This was taken miles EAST away, from the beach of De Haan. What you get is a gorgeous compression because I used a zoom-lens.

MY BELOVED FLANDERS...

MY BELOVED FLANDERS... on our way back from Brugge, the capital of the province of West-Flanders, driving towards the nearby coast, the sun just tried to peep through the heavy gray clouds. It immediately brightened things up and that was when I saw the silhouetted pollard willows, skeletal without the Summer dress, so very iconic for my beloved Flanders.

A blustery first day of Spring n Flanders

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_THINGS_THEME A blustery first day of Spring n Flanders. Once more, one of our favourite pass-times, to meander through 'le plat pays', the area behind the sea and dunes called the 'polders'. Endless views, broken up by beautiful, often old trees. When you see a row it usually means there is either a road or some water, a canal... a group of lined, 'organised' trees around a farm, protecting it. Along a road, you sometimes see there must have been a 'seam' of the same trees, but most of them have 'fallen' over the years and every so often one giant is still standing strong! You can almost follow the winding road by the trees. The wind was sweeping coldly across the winter-barren land, stopped only briefly by some trees or farms, to continue its rage over grass and clay.

IN BRUGES…

#abfav_films_songs “In Bruges” is a 2008 British-American black comedy crime film written and directed by Martin McDonagh. The film stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as two Irish hitmen in hiding, with Ralph Fiennes as their boss. The film is set and was filmed in the Belgian city of Bruges. Probably the most ICONIC view in Brugge, the city where I was born. View from the Rozenhoedkaai, looking up at the Belfry, standing tall on the Market-square and one of Brugge’s three proud towers seen from all around. LOL, I could also have called this: Blue skies?
