… Along River Schelde, Antwerp

We strolled along river Schelde, flowing by the city of Antwerp. It felt good taking the leisurely walk by a river in a foreign country. Yes, we were holidaying! We watched the boats leaving and entering the harbor, the flying and screeching seagulls a pleasant distraction.

 And there by the river we saw a cherry flower tree bloomed to its full capacity. The tree had a thin layer of soft pink blanket under it. Surprisingly it was the only tree along the whole stretch of river bank that had bloomed. The shot was taken from Steen, a castle like building by the riverside.

    When you see a cherry tree in full bloom, you have to wonder at the over-abundance of nature.
