I agree with Mike above about another fantastic reflection. Kindest REgards from, David. Ps. Bedtime now as its 10pm Wednesday. Goodnight all.

Good morning Bonnie Lad, I'm pleased you dam well liked it :))

This sluice led into a lock system, very interesting to watch huge commercial barges as well as smaller craft going through on the way to Ostend. We spent a long time just watching the traffic :))

Ca canny noo, Amelia in Norway

Hello David, you go to bed early! I don't think I have been in bed by 10pm since I was about since I was 10 years old :))

I think you would have found this area of Bruges fascinating, everyone takes photos of the pretty bits :)

Cheers my Aussie friend, Amelia

Thank you PAT. Bruges is a popular city for photographers, and so it was not so easy to find places where tourists don't go. We enjoyed watching this sluice gate open to allow a couple of large barges to pass through - although it took a long time, and disrupted the traffic flow :)

Greetings to Italy from Norway, Amelia

What bridge number is this then ? :) Did the window cleaning trick work?

Amelia Royan on September 9, 2011

Not a drop so far! Apparently, according to the weather forecast, we could get hail after midnight on Saturday! Hail? Could be interesting :)))

Nick Weall on September 10, 2011

Well the remains of Hurricane Katia are not due to hit Scotland until Monday but I guess will bring high winds and rain to much of the UK then, but all hail on Sunday is somehow appropriate I guess :))
