Happy Day with Gabriel and Chelsea

Gabriel has a thing for boats everything he sees he sees as a boat and why not most the things would float like a cereal bowl for example. One of his favorite things to do is to go to the Seine and watch the boats. Which we did.                  [Author: French la Vie]

Another large and well known city in the Flemish part of Belgium is Ghent, full of interesting architecture. The exterior of the train station. I liked the interior too. We came upon an alley full of grafitti, a lot of it very artistic. An artist at work. The end of the street. There was a lovely canal as well. So many old historic buildings.
