It is a running gag at Dutch/German VT meetings to make fun of how Martin used to say "Essen Sie schmecklich" when serving food to German customers. In Dutch Bon Appetit is "Eet smakelijk" and as the German and the Dutch language are quite close to another he thought that the German version would be "Essen Sie schmecklich".
Now Bea and I were sitting in this restaurant in Vlissingen and almost collapsed laughing when the waitress brought our food and said "Essen Sie schmecklich". She looked a bit confused when she saw our faces. Hehehe seems to be a common mistake among Dutch waiters/waitresses :-)

The Frans Naerebout statue at the South side of the Bellamy Park honors the godfather of the Vlissingen Seapilots. He lived from 1748 till 1818 and was a VOC-seapilot guiding the ships through the Schelde river delta to and from the Nothsea.
Frans made name by the rescue of 80 seamen from the sinking VOC ship "De Woestduyn".
Later in 1788 he rescued the "Zuiderburg" with 400 people onboard.
Favorite thing: There is only one coffeeshop in town and it just happened to be right across the street from Hotel Royal. A Coca Cola, a bowl or two, and a couple of games of Pac Man, can be an enjoyable afternoon or evening.
