On the 11th August we had our last port to visit and this is Bruges.
Another really pretty city with trees and canals running through it.
Yesterday was a day at sea and after all the excitement of St Petersburg it was nice to just relax
Once again the weather was kind to us and it was very warm.
In the park there are tree houses way up above us and there are lots of them. Children are not allowed to climb the trees.
Below is the explanation of the tree houses ...
They work for eight hours in one day and then have four days off to rest.
I wouldn't have the energy to do all that climbing ... plus my knees won't let me any more, but I bet the view from the top is wonderful.
There where tablecloths, cushions, clothing in fact all sorts of things that had lace added to them.
And of course no trip to Belgium would be complete without some Belgium chocolate.
We went in to buy some and samples where being offered so it would have been rude to refuse ...and it was delicious.
But we did buy some to bring home.
So today we set sail for home, sailing overnight to reach Southampton at 6am.
It has been a wonderful two week holiday and we have enjoyed every city that we have been to, but it seems to have gone by so quickly
I hope you have enjoyed my Travel Tales over the last few days ... but next week it is back to normal and back to card making.
I have managed to keep the Tuesday Tutorial going while I have been away and there will be a Friday Freebie added again so keep a look out for that.
Thank you for all your lovely comments
More tomorrow ...
