Over the past week or two I’ve dropped a few posts in about the highs and lows of our recent trip to Belgium, blogging about the visit’s now done, but we took lot’s of photographs along the way, some of which didn’t feature in posts or were not perhaps relevant. Anyway I’ve listed a few below for you:
Cafe De La Paix
St Sixtus Abbey, Westvleteren
A trio of Westvleteren beauties! (I’m referring to the beers in case you were wondering….)
The Grotto at Sint Sixtus
“The Menin Gate – The Memorial to commemorate the names of over 54,000 officers and men of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth Forces who died in the Ypres Salient before 16th August 1917 and who have no known grave. Every night at 8.00pm (20:00 hours) a moving ceremony takes place under the Menin Gate in Leper, the Last Post Ceremony has become part of the daily life and the local people are proud of this simple but moving tribute to the courage and self-sacrifice of those who fell in defence of their town.”
It’s a cake yes, but what a cake…
The Brewer in Watou, this statue is traditionally draped with fresh hops in the summer months.
Saint Bernadus Brewery, sadly not open to visit..
