I took these picture during a visit to Ostend, the pier is a nice stroll place.

I shows you the construction during low tide, every day are people that work for the repair of the wood construction.

Here gives I again a perspective through the choice of the angle.

Ostend is now the largest town on the coast and an important economic and tourist center. The city has some links to the English coast. Most tourists come to Ostend for the pleasure beach, but the attraction of the city is that there are a lot to see and experience different activities. The towers of St. Peter and Paul Church stabbing high above the city. This neo-Gothic church was built on the site of St. Peter in 1896 burned down. At the Albert I promenade is the Casino Kursaal. It is not just a casino, but a socio-cultural center with several rooms where conferences are held or theater, restaurants, bars and of course the casino hall.

I wish all visitors a nice weekend.
