Flag of Belgium  , Flanders,
Sunday, June 20, 2010

Yes, well, as i've stated in my Bruges' entry, Oostende was rather an anti-climax.... here i was, thinking i'd head to a 'lovely' Belgian beach.... only to arrive and find that it's basically a construction site, as they are trying to revamp the whole beach front... if you could call it that - more like a Belgian take on Blackpool or the Gold Coast! The buildings looked as though they'd been constructed in the 70īs... brown, ugly tall things imposing on those who walk beneath.... just plain ugly! Getting away from the beach and harbour area though, i found a rather nice park - good to see some greenery amongst the brown! Also saw something which, at first glance, thought it was play equipment for children - then i realised it was outdoor gym equipment! Very unusual!  On my way back to the train station i finally laid eyes on an old grand building - yep, it was a church. At least they had the sense not to knock these down in the 70's - the archtiecture is just too beautiful!
