Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Drum Point Lighthouse


IMG_2483 Another amazing place I got to visit with Melli was Drum Point Lighthouse and Calvert Marine Museum.
It was built in 1883 and functioned as a lighthouse for eight decades before it was restored in 1962. In 1975 it got relocated to the Calvert Museum Site. It is now the only fully furnished lighthouse in the bay.

Jientje, great pictures of the lighthouse, how exciting it would have been to live there. I love the last post you did, such a big statement for a small poem.
Your beautiful photos make me think I am actually there, thank you for sharing your holiday!

I've been to a couple of lighthouses but none were furnished. How awesome! Love the pictures.

Unknown said...

ohhh the lighthouse on stilts? that looks a little scary to live in although I would love have a light house. Very quaint and cozy! Did you snap any shots of the outside of it too? The furniture is wonderful and I can start imagining a story or two about people who lived in that light house. "As she stood in front of the lighthouse bedroom window...she wondered if he would ever return from the sea".......(LOL)

I can only begin to imagine the views that those fortunate to live in this lighthouse, must have had. I bet it got pretty cold at times. Beautiful furnishings. Great photo's.
