VMMK, an awesome museum

Ostend has a museum of modern art that is known by its initials, VMMK (Provinciaal Museum voor Moderne Kunst). It’s a good thing that the weather kept us here longer or we would have missed it, and that would have been too bad. We went yesterday and were amazed at how good it is and how large. All of the artists seem to be Belgian, and most are from West Flanders, the province we’re in. It was really awesome. If you like modern art and are going to be in Belgium, we recommend this as a side trip. You can get some idea of it from their website.

The gale warnings are gone from the British shipping forecast for our area, but significant gusts are still predicted, so we’re staying one more day.
