The price is 22Euro per night, in “high season”, and 15Euro per night in “Low Season”. Low season starts 1st October. The price is inclusive of electricity. It may also be inclusive of the use of the service point, we are not sure, because when we were there, the service point was out of order!. Fortunately we had water etc already.
It is clearly very popular, it quickly filled up at the weekend, slightly quieter on Monday.
The area on the other side of the road to the coach park appears to be the better of the two, having larger bays.
Adjacent to the Stellplatz, is the Yacht Club and Marina, with the usual rows of very expensive boats, all neatly tied up and empty..
We spend the afternoon strolling around Bruges, it is very, very nice. Number one priority is finding a church with a mass for Kathleen, either this evening, or, tomorrow. It is another Cathedral job, 10:30 Sunday.
a couple of people playing music and marching around with a flock of geese,
a group of young men strolling the streets in Victorian clothing,
a couple of guys riding about on motorised “surf” boards, playing Beach Boys music as they go, and,
a chap with a collection of birds of prey and owls.
That by the way, is all happening on a Saturday afternoon, in the small square where we are sitting having a beer (ZilverPlaat).
I wonder what it is like after closing time?
The end result is we spend most of the afternoon eating and drinking in the main market square, which has the dual advantage of being bathed in sunshine and having a plentiful choice of eating places.
A little more strolling around the old town, followed by more eats, Belgian waffles this time, while listening to three buskers playing classical music. Not sure I see what all the fuss is abou (the waffles that is), but, when in Belgium, you have to at least give them a try!
After lunch we take a boat trip around the canal within the city, it is amazingly pretty, and also amazingly old, much of it dating back to 1500 and before, all beautifully preserved.
