Taking a long walk at the left bank

Hi sweeties! Today I have an extraordinary post for you, it’s art and it’s not art, well let’s say more inspiration. Here comes the situation, as you know I had the flu for 10 days or more, actually something real hideous, was getting weak, so to get back on my feet I need some fresh air, number two after sickness I am always looking for some inspiration, you know just to get that mojo-jojo going again, number three we have school vacation for a week here so kiddo is at home and I just love spending fun time with him. We took our walking shoes and hit the left bank or as it is called Linkeroever. If you feel like take a tea and join us for our walk.

Here we were still full of energy, happily landed at the other side. We are going to discover what we missed till know, you know every time of the year you see things with different eyes.

In the beginning it was a bit cloudy and foggy, but we didn’t care, we are the brave lions!

Then there was that little fellow coming to greet us, jumping all the time, like his legs were too cold to touch the ground. I am not a big birdwatcher so forgive me have no idea which type he was. Looking for some nautical – beach – strand inspiration we headed down the avenue and:

there it stood, alone, away from all the others that were attached in a line standing strictly like soldiers. So different in style, and that art work just caught my eye, wonder who lives there… I could have it, on wish list check! Before we reached the strand I saw this in the yard of a restaurant:

what a perfect inspiration for the theme Vino & Ale, stay tuned it is coming! Our strand was cold and abounded, only sea gulls kept us some company so we decided to turn towards the port and look for some inspiration there.

It was a still life waiting for us, all anchored down, quiet, no movements, some painting, some reparation, but luckilyΒ the sun came out and showed us her face, amazing site of yachts:

And this one I really found inspirational, the coral colour with those dried out alga’s, just fantastic nautical view:

We left the port and walked further in the park there we found this great old bell that we called the mama bell:

And a smaller version that we called the son bell (guess why…):

Weathered they are as they came from actual ships and still stay standing in all condition outdoors.

Anchors disconnected or maybe reconnected to land.

Still carrying their memories good or bad, you can guess!

A bouy grounded will never navigate anymore.

And modern art that got destroyed or improved by the unknown biker, you can decide.

We finished our tour by the legs of the wooden sailor looking down at our Schelde and welcoming the visitors. Hope you enjoyed this little walk with us and got inspired, if so just sleeves up and create! Have a happy week everyone!
