The Belgian coastline may not be the most picturesque in Europe. The wet, gray skies, the constant wind and the blockhouse-like condominiums do not always put one in the mood for a beach holiday. However, in Oostduinkerke, if one turns facing the sea, one can almost forget all of that and imagine oneself in another era. Here in this tiny Flemish town, fishermen continue the traditional method of fishing for shrimp on horseback. It is the only remaining place in the world where this is still practiced.
