My bicycle trip (36 km) to the farm for children with different animals
Also, a misty moment, next pictures become better the sun came through the clouds

Former farm "De Zeven Torentjes", now used as a petting zoo. Originally "'s Heer Boudewijnsburg" an important fief on Assebroek and dependent on the Burg of Bruges.

Initially, the domain is a free heritage named Ter Leyen. Boudin or Boudewijn de Vos, alderman and treasurer of the city of Bruges, acquired the property in the second half of the 14th century. In 1372 it was fairly well borrowed from the count and from now on it is given the name of the owner, "'s Heer Boudewijnsburg". The walled-in domain is then 38 ha and has 40 back loans on which it has a low jurisdiction.
You can see the pigeon tower in the middle
Pigeon Tower: 16th century (?), Brick construction on an octagonal plan with crowning brick spire. At the base of the spire are the (eight!) Corner turrets, each of which has a flight opening. Inside there are 650 L-shaped niches in which the pigeons nest. The downstairs space is covered with a brick vault. Above this is the actual pigeon attic.

I hope you like it.
