So we made it to De Verloren Hoek and were enjoying a couple of pint'jes of beer when we heard a band approaching us which consisted of seven or eight older men dressed in blue tunics, a farmer's hat and a red scarf all playing musical instruments, being led by a man in a military uniform and being followed by a Saab convertible and about ten people on foot all smartly dressed. They stopped next to us and from the car alighted another "older" couple with sashes around their body with some Flemish writing on. We can only assume that they may have been the mayor and mayoress of Brugge. They promptly left and carried on down the road only to return five minutes later and stop again outside the pub but this time to go in for a drink.
All this going on while the road was closed off due to a small flea market which we browsed but didn't find anything useful. In England, what we may call a garage sale.
So we headed home and Kerri knocked up a fabulous tagine, we watched Eurotrip with a brief appearance from Matt Damon and went to bed at 9.30!
Here are a few photos from the last few days:
