    An Afternoon Beer In The Spring Sunshine #2

    by johngayton Written May 30, 2013

    As I was finishing my beer at Petrus the sun was leaving the square and so it was time to move on.

    Heading towards the harbour I passed a couple of bars, but these were, literally, too shady for me. Then on the corner I found the glass-wall enclosed terrace of Faro which was perfectly located for the sun's present position.

    As a bar Faro is a bit trendier than I'd normally prefer but the beer was good, service friendly and about 50 cents cheaper than Petrus

    After a great night out in Leuven and when we stepped out the last pub we decided to go to Oostende for a walk at the beach.

    We came right on time to enjoy a wonderful sunrise!

    OOSTENDE-STENE DORP.
    A picturesque village, known for its annual horse-blessing, its windmill, and other activities. The picture shows the ST.ANNA church.

    A nice painted facade from a pub in Ostend.

    Cheers !

    WWII fortifications

    by bonio Written Oct 1, 2008

    Just out of town on the way to Middelkerke there are several old guns and defensive installations. Put there by the Germans in WWII presumably to defend the harbour and coast.
    An interesting visit.
