Next morning we drove through Belgian countryside on the way to Bruges. This involved looking at a lot of cows, which looked like relatively happy cows with plenty grazing space. Not like the stuff you see in CA with one cow per square foot. We did a detour to check out the North Sea coast. The town on the coast was surrounded by a dam about 3 meters tall, though it didn’t look like the town was below sea level. Maybe when the tide comes.
