Thanks everyone.
I want to thank all TE friends who responded to my birthday photo.
I hope to spend some more time with you, but I regularly lose friends by passing away, so I can also happen, but we continue to think positively.

Biketrip to this Castle 22 km of my home.

Castel Santa Maria

The castle Santa Maria was built in 1938, and completed in 1940. It was built by the baron Jaques de Crombrugghe de Looringhe and his wife Marie-Louise van Caloen de Basseghem. The baron was judge of 1st instance in Bruges and came from Ichtegem. He built the castle because he wanted a summer residence close to Bruges. His wife was the daughter of the landlord of the castle "Ter Straeten" that was demolished in the 70s and became a modern villa. Now we know it mainly from the sports complex that is on the front farmlands of the original castle. The naming comes from the ship the 'Santa Maria' with which Christopher Columbus discovered America.

I hope that you enjoy it
