The first of May is a holiday in Belgium. It was quiet cool, but the sun was shining and together with a friend we went to the Domain of Huizing close to Brussels. (I wrote about it in 2009 here)

The map, as you can see you can easily spend the whole day here.

Today the castle is a restaurant/café

You can rent a boat ...

or just walk around and enjoy the flowers trees and plants

There is also a little river

this girl walked her cat

for the little once there is a zoo with small animals like chicken, geese, goats, rabbits etc ...

and very original playground, with dragons and other creatures sculptured in old tree trunks which had been recuperated from the park

a little farer from the playground is another smaller restaurant/café for hungry and thirsty people

This looks like a wonderful place to take the family. That playground is really special. I think most kids would love it. I especially enjoyed your first photograph. It seemed right out of a faery tale.

What a lovely park! We really don't have parks like that here in Saudi Arabia!

I love walking around in places like this, even if I've been there before, because there are different views in different times. And just to be out in the garden is so nice!


About Me

My photo
I love painting, writing, travelling and photography. My favorit models are cats which I observe with fun and humor. I am German, married to an Italian and we live in Waterloo (15 km from Brussels) / Belgium since many years. Waterloo is a famous place to many tourists, because Napoleon lost his battle here against Wellington and other European countries.
