The day started out decent -- cloudy but not windy. Soon we were in Watou and politeness required we stop and have a beer from one of the local breweries (St. Bernardus and Van Ecke).

|Time for a local beer|
|Watou's Wit and Draft St Bernardus Triple. Doesn't get any fresher.|
|Alpaida Blond and Kwaremont (from Bavik)|
|A local Poperinge beer, Not as hoppy as you'd think|
At Kortrijk, after a Chinese lunch. we picked up a bike path along a canal. Unforunately, some km down the canal there was major construction requiring a detour. The detour was marked for bicycles but after a while it became clear we were pretty going in the opposite direction we wanted, we abandoned the detour route and may our way back to the canal.
|Friday having Chinese for lunch|
We stopped for a "sharpener" a couple of times out delightful, practically hidden little pubs.
|Double X Bitter hit the spot|
|Sharpener #1, Ename Blond from draft.|
|Sharpener #2, Moose Blues|
Forecast calls for more rain tomorrow, so we may again request the kind assistance of NBMS (Belgian Rail) in the aid of keeping us dry(-er)
