by the seaside

Hubby had the day off yesterday so we drove to the Belgian seaside, to Knokke-Heist in West Flanders to be exact. It's a beautiful beach resort north of the historical city Brugge. When we got out of the car we were greeted by sea breeze and squawking seagulls. We took a long walk and sat down at a café on the beach where the children were able to play in the sand. Then we walked some more and dipped our toes into the North Sea before heading back home. We drove through Brugge on our way back but next time I promise to stop there and take photos.

  2. The colours and light are amazing! I love the seaside this time of year or in the fall. I could stay an entire day and admire the sea on the deserted beach.
