a damp morning walking in the Belgian dunes

This morning we visited the Staatsnatuurreservaat De Westhoek, a dunes and nature reserve about 2k out of De Panne. Even though it wasn’t actually raining it was cold and windy.

Primroses in bloom in the background.

This sign for creepy crawlers appears to be the sign posted to describe the mobile homes in France that ‘creep’ right up against the Belgian border.

On the dunes, a skinny escargot, at least compared to the fat ones we saw in France, which was where we were headed next.
