November walk in the village

In November, we had a few exceptionally warm days. On one of them I decided to take my new camera for a walk in my village, because ‘hey, I can now photograph these things with a better camera!’… 😉

Baasrode is a quiet little village along Belgian’s main river, the Scheldt, with about 6,000 inhabitants. There isn’t much to say about this place, though I could probably still write a long post about it if I would try. To name just a few things I could write about: we have two museums, a chocolate maker who exports to Harrods London and got the world record for ‘biggest chocolate praline’ a few years ago, we have a little steam train that runs on summer Sundays and a small nature park along the Scheldt. It’s a simple place but I like it here. 🙂

If you really want to know more about it, I could dedicate a post or two to Baasrode, but I wouldn’t want to bore you with it so here are a few photos of my walk in November.
