Day One in Belgium

I made it!  Here is my Happy Writer Dance in Brugge!


The first day has been amazing.  My good writing buddy and critique group partner, Sabina Rascol (and fellow member of our critique group Viva Scriva), is with me taking pictures.  She did these amazing “writer-in-the field” shots that I didn’t know she was taking while I took notes around town.  Here are a few at the beguinage, which is a type of lay women’s “convent” of sorts where my main character is going to live for a time and attend school.


In front of the chapel in the beguinage.


What does a linden tree smell like?  They are all around the beguinage.


Taking pictures inside the beguinage.


Looking for my main character’s house where her Father lives and works.  I like the look of this door here!  (It’s actually a potter’s shop right now)


Trying to read the sign above the door.


Walking toward The Church of Our Lady, the tallest steeple in Brugge.  It’s awe-inspiring.  My main character would have thought so, too.


And here are just some general pictures outside this “Writer-in-the field” series.

Possibly my main character’s home (outside the beguinage) where her astronomer father lives and works.


Medieval gardens!


More to come later!
