Bruges Canal Tour
I love boat tours of a city. The perspective you get, looking at everything from a duck’s point of view, is marvelous. Here’s a little photo tour through Bruges, on a warm and sunny day in May, the canals thick with boats, the typically fantastic architecture framed by an impeccably blue sky.
Our own boat was mercifully underfilled, and included a well-behaved but disinterested visitor who didn’t even bark at the flotillas of waterfowl we passed. So now, just imagine yourself as a peaceful Brugeois duck, paddling lazily, wishing the tourists would get out of the way, looking around and up from water level, and I’ll show you your life.
Not bad, eh, the life of a duck? Thirsty yet? We were too, and so we went off to a pub that serves 400 different beers, chosen from a wooden-bound menu that weighs several pounds. But that’s another story.
