Following the visit to the abbey we moved on to Beisbroek which is just outside Bruges and is one of two big country estates situated side by side in the woods.  Beisbroek covers 80 hectares  and contains trees, footpaths, heathland, picnic areas, a deer compound, a cafeteria and a castle that serves as interactive nature centre, a planetarium and an observatory.

The first port of call was to be the cafeteria for lunch although we managed to do an accidental detour on the way.  The woodlands were magnificent, the trees were showing off their spectacular autumn colours and the ground was covered with a carpet of leaves.

      Thanks JD :-)

      That one reminds me of the scene in The Lord of the Rings where one of the hobbits says ‘get off the road Frodo’ as the dark rider is looming up.

    My favourite is the first pic. I especially like the view of the bend in the road… reminds me of one of Robert Frost’s poems, about the ‘road not taken’
