Belgium has a shoreline of only 67 km. The city of Ostend (Oostende in Dutch) is situated about in the middle and called the queen of seaside resorts. It was very windy that day and the first weekend after the corona lockdown, so not that many people were on the beach yet.
At right you see the new dams of the port of Ostend. Looking in SW direction, you can see half of the Belgian coastline up to the border with France: starting with the apartment blocks in Mariakerke (2-3 km), Raversijde, Middelkerke (8-9 km), Nieuwpoort (15.9 km) with pier, Oost-Duinkerke (20 km) and De Panne-Koksijde (23-27 km). Some factories at the Port of Dunkirk (France) (43-44 km) are visible too but hardly distinguishable on this downsized version. It was quite a difficult panorama to stitch with the waves, the fast moving cloud shadows and nearby perspective of the balustrade.

Not an easy work, but you solved it very well. Regarding the riddle I have no clue...

Horst should be right, then with Mariakerke in the background. Cheers, Martin
