Canals

One of the cool things about Herentals, Belgium, are the canals that go through town. These are not just decorative canals - they are used for shipping of goods across part of Belgium.

On our last evening there, Ben (my son) and Amy (my sister) paused to watch a few barges pass under a bridge. I enjoyed that some barge owners carry their cars on their barges - making it easier to have a life beyond the barge. (My brother in law explained that barge pilots have a difficult life - raising kids is not easy when you don't live in a town.)

This is just my personal opinion but if I could not carry a car/motorized vehicle with me I would go absolutely nuts! Good to know that they can still have freedom outside of the barge.
