Strolling and Boating in Brugges

We started today with Tammy bringing Melissa and Mary Belgium coffe in their room and then having a wonderful breakfast at the hotel. After strolling the streets we floated the canal and saw some beautiful buildings. We went into the Church of Our Lady and saw the only sculpture of Madonna done by Michaelangelo that is outside of Italy. The next very ornate church was St. Saviour's Cathedral which had beautiful stained glass windows and tombs in the floor. After all the churches it was time for a beer so we went to a local brewery called Die Halve Maan, the only local brewery left in Brugges. To work off the beer, Tammy, Joanne, Renee and Sue decided to climb 366 stairs to the top of the bell tower. Mary and Melissa didn't care to work off their beers so stayed below. Of course we had to buy some Belgian chocolate and Melissa bought a beautiful Belgian lace scarf for her dresser. Now we have gathered in one of our rooms and having a glass of wine to celebrate our day
