Today was supposed to be our beach day. There's a beautiful beach about a 15-20 minute walk away from our hotel and we were looking forward to enjoying it. The weather, however, didn't want to cooperate. We checked the weather the first day we got here and it was supposed to be mostly sunny and mid 70s. It was overcast and upper 60s instead. Not as much fun for beaches. But we still tried to make the most of it and went anyways. This is one of the cute streets we walked along to get there:
This was closer to the beach. They had the flags of all the countries in the European Union (we think...)
And here is the lovely (cold) beach:
We had lunch at one of the cafes on the beach...and waited about an hour to get our mediocre/overpriced food. But hey, we're in Europe! So we're not really complaining. After the beach, we stopped at the grocery store to pick up some stuff for dinner, and went back to the hotel. We spent the rest of the day reading/writing/watching hotel television. Another very relaxing day for us, so now we are fully ready to move on to tons of sight-seeing in Bruges, our last stop on the trip! 3 days left!
