Set off from Gent for Brussels. Arrived about 10.30 a.m. Got out car and had a walk round.
Went into Restaurant and had our first filter coffee with very good tarts with custard and fresh fruit. Had a look at all the shops, bought P.C’s and I nearly bought “Lottery Tickets” instead of stamps!
Had a very nice lunch in a snack bar of “Sole and Shrimp Salad” and bread and butter with Coffee.
It took us over an hour to get out of Brussels as we got lost, very badly sign-posted, but at last got on our road to Luxembourg. Did not manage as far as that, but stayed the night at Dinant in Belgium for the night.
Had a lovely dinner of soup, Pork and Chips and a lovely salad and Ice Cream. It was lovely. We had a run round Town in car as it was raining.
Went up to the “Citadel” but it was too wet to see anything. Came back to Hotel where we sat in Bar till bed-time.
Very good room with H & C. *
