Boats trickled in to the Coupure until mid October. Reversing under the lift bridge into the Coupure on a windy day with barges moored each side is an interesting prospect (for the spectators). A full range of boats from million euro gin palaces through barges to a 60 ft widebeam.
The weather in Belgium certainly seems wetter, if not colder, than Roanne. The Coupure is about 5 mins from the town centre, the tourists have thinned out a bit but still lots of happy photographers in the town centre.
Lots of Brugge photos, a full Winters project if desired.
