    1. You are correct. It's the view from my room. I dread returning to fireworks in Michigan for Memorial Day.

  2. Very pretty! I was told that the huge windows were meant to help take furniture to the homes on the upper floors!

    1. Merchants with shops on the lower level lived in the middle and used the top floor for storage. If you look closely, you can see the pulleys up top for hauling goods. The shop on the left is a scooter rental.

  3. And did you rent a scooter Denise? Typical Dutch house. How did you get on in Ostende?

    1. No scooter. Too crazy here on the roads. Just drove through Ostende. Nice yacht club.

    1. I bought the cutest canal houses for my mantel. I'll post a pic when I get home. This city does have a fairy-tale feeling. Visited a beautiful home today and wondered why I wasn't born rich instead of gorgeous, lol.

    1. And now I head home. This constant staring up at houses has done a real number on my neck.

  6. I like the contrasts between the two buildings. So unlike anything I've seen in the United States.
