Saturday afternoon I was in Ghent with my camera in the hand.
A pity the sun was not of the party, we got heavy cloudy weather, but high temperatures for Belgium.
Nevertheless were a lot of tourist in Ghent, for a boat trip on the river.
But I found this image on the “Korenlei” where people eat and use a cup of coffee, the children play on the pier, a very nice image for to make a picture, I find a little bit dangerous with the water very close, for these little children.

I hope you enjoy of these picture.

From the 11th century the Korenlei was a sort of jetty to bring goods (mainly cereals from Artois) to the adjacent warehouses quickly or to collect the goods. Gent had the so-called corn stack right, making the grain (and grain) that came from northern France, had to walk. Gent via The grain had first two weeks are the grain depot, before it could be on the market in Ghent traded. Several properties are strongly reminiscent of those activities and reflect the prosperity of the Craft and Ghent.
Since the 18th and 19th centuries, most warehouses grown and there are plenty of restaurants are located, as well as the House of the unfree Shippers.
With a view to the World Exhibition of 1913, the historical buildings were thoroughly restored.
