It has been three eventful days since my Friday meet-up with M.
Starting Friday afternoon through Sunday evening, it was Harelbeke Feest. The weather was lovely, so there were crowds of people everywhere. Saturday afternoon, D and I went to join a guided tour of the new apartment building site in the city center. We then wandered about enjoying the sights and sounds of the city festival. We visited a couple of exhibitions for free, sat down for a beer each, bought some chicken wings from a youth club and then cycled back home for dinner. We returned in the evening to watch the annual fireworks. After that, we went to Kortrijk to a local beer festival.
Harelbeke Feest continued on this Sunday, which also happens to be Dag Van De Landbouw. Because we were to have a barbecue lunch with the family, and would not have much time to spare, D and I went to visit a goat farm in the morning before our lunch at the parents. After the lovely lunch, we decided to not stay on, but left to visit a vineyard in Wervik. After the vineyard and on our way out, we met the farmer woman whom we usually buy our potatoes from. When she told us that she had visited an interesting horse farm not far way, D decided right there and then that we will go see some horses instead of heading home as planned. There were some crazy drive around before we finally reached the Flemish horse farm. We saw some impressive work horses and even managed to get on the last ride on a horse buggy.
What a day!
