A few of us went on a group ride today. From Hertsberge we rode through Brugge to Oostende and then up to De Haan. Oostende seems like a big harbor town, lots of boats and industry. De Haan is very tourist oriented, much like some of the cities in Florida. Gimmick shops and etc. aren't uncommon. The beaches here seem really nice and natural. Belgians must be tough, swimming today would have been cold. The high was around 75F.
