Out and About in Ypres.

We spotted these lovely horses pulling their carriages around Ypres. We decided that we would take a trip but it wasn't easy to decide where they were going to stop, it seemed a bit hit and miss. So we eventually located a place in the square and hung around until the carriages appeared. Unfortunately Sandra could not resist the lure of the bright lights and the chance of a look around a shop or two, so we missed the first one that pulled up. (we could have got on and left her abandoned and we did give it some thought before deciding that wasn't very charitable!!)

We eventually managed to get on board and sat right at the front with a horses bum view of the journey!! The town is so pretty and they put an enormous amount of effort into the decorations.

Sandra and Madeline settling down for the trip.

Me and Sue trying to stay warm and dry!
The best thing about the trip was that it was free, you don't often get something for nothing anymore.

It was a really miserable day weather wise, so we found ourselves another coffee shop and went in for another hot chocolate!! The view from the coffee bar was pure chocolate box at Christmas!!

Now Christmas is nearing the weather forecast is saying that we may well get a little sprinkling of snow in the next few days. It would be nice to have a white Christmas for the first time in absolutely ages, fingers crossed.
