|Witch for Halloween|
We started out after Halloween driving to Dover for the ferry, easy enough. Crossed on the ferry and started our continental journey from Calais, France. Made it through France and into Belgium. We stopped at a brewery on the way, but we realized that Nov. 1st was a religious day... most places were ghost towns until we got into the city. However, we did spot this awesome bread vending machine on the side of the road.

Once in Brugge, we checked into our hotel and took to the streets. Luckily the rain let up some and we could walk the town with out being drenched. We partook in these marshmallow chocolate cookie things (Josh Name?) to sustain us until dinner. After dinner we saw many interesting sites...

The next day we headed to the village Josh lived in and checked out the American School where he spent some of his formative years. Then we were off to his bakery and for a walk in Tervuren.
That afternoon it was time to head back to France to catch our ferry. Along the way we stopped back at the St Sixtus Trappist Monastery Brewery to visit with some monks and buy a very expensive batch of the "Worlds Best Beer." Josh is a very happy man.
And a Bit More:
This past weekend we Popped into London for the day to the Discover Dogs dog show sponsored by the Kennel Club. We spent nearly 4 hours looking and petting some 200+ breeds of dogs. Narrowed down the choices a bit seeing them in person. Olive has asked for a soft cuddly one... size is not a problem for her anymore!
