Yesterday I promised more images of our visit to Brussels and our drive back to Brasschaat via the Antwerp quayside and the Port. My mom took these photos. They are really neat.
First up is a better view of the Grand Place in Brussels.
We were going to stop and take the elevator to the top of the Atomium but there was no parking within a mile. So, we will do it another day.
This is the MAS or Museum on the River in Antwerp in the Basin area of the Port. We’ll go back some time before we leave for Paris and Venice.
Next to the MAS in the port basin is the famous north sea lightboat, the West-Hinder. It is now a tourist attraction and tomorrow we go back to both the boat and the MAS.
As we drove out of the Quayside and more into the Haven or Harbour and port we came across Brabo, the floating Derrick crane with a lift capacity of 800 tons.
Further along the Quayside road toward Ekeren, where my Mom was born, we passed some Wind power turbines but they were idle.
That’s it for now. This is Frederick and tomorrow more of the great city of Antwerp including a few pictures of Brabo and why he is so important to the history and culture of this city.
