This visit during Covid-19 to Hoeke part of Damme, this is allowed in Belgium at the moment

My bike ride went past Hoeke a polder village with beautiful old farms, like this one in my picture.
I was standing on the slope of the A11 bridge over the Damsevaart
The farm is still in its original origin, inside I don't know.
Unfortunately, it rained, so the sharpness is slightly less than usual.

Share history:

Medieval Hoeke stretched on both sides of the current N49 / A11 motorway. In addition to the church, the harbor town also included a hospital, a mill, a toll house and a German trade office. Hoeke had at least two quays or jetties and possibly a sheltered harbor basin. The town was a marketplace for grain, salt fish and fruit, and it was probably also possible to repair or build ships. Recent historical and archaeological research by Ghent University made it possible to reconstruct the port of Hoeke on a map.

I hope you like it
