Marathon 2

Change of plan: I did not leave for Paris today.  They've decided they need me in Brussels.
Nice to be wanted.
So I'm posting another photo of the coastal marathon that ended in Oostende last Saturday.
Near the finish this one young lady is suffering, the other finds it fun.
Or is she just smiling for the photo?

Marathon 1

Rode my bike down to the seafront yesterday and discovered the coastal marathon.
From De Panne to Oostende, a half marathon, to be exact.
Some of you may know that I love clouds.  So this marathon was a great experiment to catch runners, beach, sea and clouds.  Not easy, because there were a lot of people about.  But I love a challenge.

Learning to surf

Went and had a drink on a terrace overlooking a manmade pool of seawater earlier this week.
This is actually an overflow basin for the harbour of Oostende.  They breed Oysters in a part of it, and it is well used as a recreational area for learning surfers and sailors.
Very soothing, relaxing.

Kitegirl II

Love kites : the technology of flight.  Love girls piloting kites.  No wonder this is the second picture of a girl kiting on this blog. But this time the kite is in the picture as well.  And a good view of the beach right up to the Casino.

It was very windy that day.

Beach Volley: rear view

I know what you are thinking.
But have a good look.  Taking into consideration my hobby, how could I not take a picture of this?  And I cannot help where they publish the advertisement?
And I love the composition, the two girls walking in line, the two arms, each holding a bottle of water...  No, they didn't pose for this one.  It is a snapshot.

Beach Volley: great action at the net.

Such a shame I cut her foot off, poor girl, stood a bit too close to the action.  Or she came too close to me, whatever.
Love this fast action.

Beach Volley: low action

This girl is a teammember of the losing finalists.  She exercises great control, that ball goes where she wants it.

Beach Volley: another one bites the dust

In Belgium we have an expression that says "Biting in the Sand".  The proper English expression is in the title of this post.  During the semi finals and finals of the Belgian Beach Volley a witnessed lots of competitors hitting the sand.

The kite or the girl?

What, one should go to the kite festival for the kites.
Now wait just a minute.  Am I then not allowed to show my appreciation for the way the kiter handles the kite?  Such grace, such technique, such style...
OK, I give in, she looked good.

Beachvolley

Love beach sports.
Hope they organize the world championships beach volley in Oostende again this year.  I'll be there with my digicam.

Tennis anyone?

Passed the Ostend Tennis Club on this rainy evening.
Some players didn't let the light rain spoil their fun.
That's the spirit!

Ropeskipping

Demonstrations of not so popular sports today in Oostende.  The Rope Skipping Oostende club was showing their best.  Great dynamic stuff.
