the heat is gone

Finally! So I had a long walk today of 8 hours. I left over the ancient Roman road and from there to Kanne alongside the Albert canal where I had a coffee at 't Heukske. Afterwards I followed the Jeker river till where it floods under the Albert canal. From there I followed the canal again and rounded Mount Saint Peter on Belgium French territory I walked alongside the river Meuse until I climbed MT St Peter (Montagne Saint Pierre) to Caestert plateau and crossed Poppelmonde and Jeker valley to Cannerberg hill where I went through Wolder field back home again.
The pics are made with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 in the Dutch-Belgian border area of the Albert canal and the river Meuse.
