Today I finally reached the Belgian coast
... It took me a few days to cover the distance between Ypres
and the coast (30 km). I am but a small rat and it takes time to travel on my own. Luckily there were some good souls who gived me a lift and helped my on me way …
And now I am on one of these smooth sandy beaches that run for nearly 67 km between De Panne and Knokke, with a width of up to half a kilometer at low tide. In several resorts, you can find massive sand dunes and nature preserves--while in others, you can visit casinos, spend hours in fashionable shops, explore museums and aquariums, fish, ride horseback, windsurf, learn the sport of ‘sand yachting’, or take the kids to amusement parks and other family attractions.
I like it here … funny that I never have been here before!
