A WEEKEND IN FRANCE


We went for a weekend to France, to Dunkerque to be exact, it is just past the Belgian border in the North-West of France and by the North sea.

We took the dog with us and that turned out to be quite a handicap as the world is not really dog friendly, you can not visit one museum and in a lot of places you are not welcome with a dog, not even a tiny one. So we did a lot of walking and sightseeing.

THERE WAS THIS BEAUTIFUL SHIP IN THE HARBOUR

WE WANTED TO SEE MORE OF IT SO WE WENT CLOSER TO INVESTIGATE IT

IT TURNED OUT TO BE A HISTORICAL PROTECTED MONUMENT THAT YOU COULD VISIT ON THE INSIDE, ALAS IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE WITH THE DOG BUT WE WERE IMPRESSED WITH HOW IT LOOKED ON THE OUTSIDE

WE THOUGHT IT WAS A REAL GEM, BUILT IN 1901 AND IT WAS CALLED DUTCHESS ANNE AND IT WAS GERMAN BUT NOW IT WAS A MUSEUM
