Day 6 – 19.5 miles to east of Huijbergen
Today the tarmac finally relented a bit. A few miles of it to get through Bergen op Zoom, but the rest was mostly farm tracks.
A few sights today. Such as Fort de Roovere, from the 1600s. But a bit too big to view. I think you need a helicopter!
Also saw my first “How far to Nice” signpost. Quite a long way… and even further using my route.
The route is marked with white-over-red blazes, as on the signpost above. However other routes also use this marking. The best signpost I’ve seen in a while…
Take your pick from the six!
Didn’t intend quite so far today, but camping spots were hard to find. Was just about ready to camp on the farm track when a footpath veered off along a nice mown grass path. Home found for the night.
