More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

Last Monday I went to the little town Blankenberge at the Belgian coast. To get there, read my post below !


Coming out of the station I was greated by this lady


Amongst all new buildings, there was one old left.






a terrible rush to the beach






ugly buildings all along the beach to house sun hungry people


a nice beach

and a 350-m long pier, constructed in 1933.






many people enjoying the sea


isn't that fun to dig in the mud ?

Look Ma...no hands ROFLMAO. Oh Madame Chat what wonderful pictures. The beach looks so fun. Where are all the palm trees?

That looks pretty awesome to me -- I live in Alaska and it is already starting to feel like autumn. A great set of photos!

You are so right about the ugly apartment blocks. They look like Soviet Socialist style housing.

It is one of those summers. If there is a chance of a warm sunny day desperate peolpe rush to the beach.

That is a fun little building. I love old architecture like that. The beach shots are great. So many people!

Looks like you had a great time despite the crowds! Getting there was something else, oh dear!

The beach and pier look lovely, but the buildings really are dreadful looking. I love that one old building!

It is a verrrrrry wide beach... and the waves are so small ... it is more like our bay than the Ocean. I thought SEAS were BIG WAVES like Oceans. I learn something EVERY day! (and MUCH from you!) LOL!

I love the beach... I can watch the waves roll in forever.

are those ugly buildings for bloody tourists like me? yikes! an eyesore - we wanted to go one time to the seaside in belgium but decided not to so those might have been the ferienwohnung/holiday apartments they were renting us? hmm

Blankenberge gets so crowded. I am a big fan of De Panne myself, even though the cafes and restaurants tend to be a bit over priced at that end of the coast.
