Waterburcht - Water castle (Kasteel Wissekerke te Bazel, Vlaanderen, SkyWatch Friday #18)


Flanders-inside-dec2008-Wissekerke

’t Was een grijze en druilerige winterdag, een mens denkt dan wel eens “ik wil op reis” zoals in ‘ver weg’ en ‘bijzonderheden’ en ook wel ‘nieuwe belevenissen’, terwijl je in feite, om weer tevreden te zijn, alleen maar naar je eigen (ruime) omgeving moet kijken met de ogen van een toerist.

It was a grey and drizzly winter day and then one can think “I want to be on a journey” as in ‘far away’ and ‘specialties’ and also ‘new experiences’, while in fact, in order to be content again, one only has to look at its own (large) environment with the eyes of a tourist.

Yes, I try every day to look at my town and area as if I were a tourist. That's how we learn what beautiful areas we live in.

The building is fantastic!

What a fine, old building set against a lovely sky, even if it is mostly grey. I would like to be the tourist sometime!

Ver lopen moeten we niet,
om schiterende dingen te zien.
Wonderlijk hoe je telkens je foto's beschrijft.
En dan nog met prachtige foto's.
Geniet van het weekend vol met stralende kinderoogjes!

Niet alleen het doorkijkje naar de pasteltinten in de lucht is erg mooi, ook je woorden mogen er zijn.

Ben ooit eens in dat kasteel binnen geweest. Bij de ingang lag een matje met daarop de woorden: "De lieve mensen van Kruibeke heten u welkom". En daar moest ik dan mijn voeten aan vegen.
