A few miles from Brugge, you have the small town of Damme.
In the Middle-Ages, this used to be the harbour of Brugge, one of the wealthiest cities in the North.
Due to silt the North Sea is now about 25 miles out, but Damme retained it's reputation for good food and beer, wonderful old buildings full of the history of revolutionary Flanders.
Centuries later Napoleon saw the importance of the area and ordered a system of canals to be built.
Today, whichever road you come from, if you want to get to Damme, you'll drive along those beautiful treelined canals.
the sun had sunk lower, the early Springday almost over... another canal, another image, surrounded by beauty. This is more about mood, I feel.
Hope this brings a bit of joy again, have a good day and thanx for your visit, so very much appreciated, Magda, (*_*)
