MY WORLD - Ostend Visit
When I was at the Ostende Sailing Ships Festival I also did a stroll along the beach and through the city.
The railway station of Ostende from outside and inside
These 3 bronze sculptures are sitting just in front of the station and can be used as a seat
They look towards the habour
there are two others just besides, and the have all the same face
Along the beach it wasn't so nice because works are going on to be ready for the summer season.
but a little farer there were no works and school children enjoyed their holidays at the sea
The North sea on the Belgian coast looks always grey even when the sky is blue.
A street leading to the beach
Unfortunately in the 70th all beautiful old Victorian style houses were demolished to build new modern houses for the tourists. I discovered this beautiful "left over". Ostend had been such a beautful town, but now it became real ugly.
