13/36.- Flanders: Blankenberge, the Pier


Northwards along the Belgian coast from Oostende,  Blankenberge is a popular seaside resort famous especially for its pier which, even though it is neither as large nor as animated as the Brighton Pier in England, has been something of a landmark for many years.

The little house on wheels in the foreground is a remnant of olden days, when prudish bathers afraid to expose themselves would change into their bathing suits inside and then be towed to the edge of the water to bathe.
