A nice start in Belgium. For the first time we come into contact with the Belgian border. There has been free border traffic between the two kingdoms for years, but the border posts have been proud since 1843. South of Ossendrecht, the border runs through wooded areas and ends up in Putte. It is a border town. The "grounds" of Ravenhof Castle are also spread over the two countries. By the way, that is a special castle that has been inhabited since the 16th century by the genus Moretus-Plantin. A wealthy family (printers) from Antwerp who lived in the castle as a country estate until the 20th century. The Grensstraat runs through the two countries to the Kalmthoutse Heide, a beautiful nature area with heath, sand drifts and fens. It is completely free roaming. In fact, the area is young, since it has only been recognized since 1988. Various Suske and Wiske stories such as: "The secret of the Kalmthout heath" take place in this area. Further north we pick up the border path again towards Huijbergen. The path runs through forests and former military sites (from Ossendrecht and Woensdrecht (of those warheads)). The history of Huijbergen is dominated by the Wilhelmites, a monastery order from 1224, which settled here as early as 1277. The order explored here and there, which were later added to the Netherlands. That made the border very erratic. In 1847 the last Wilhelmite left, and the nuns (Ste.Marie) sat here. Since the Second World War, nothing is left of the old Bobbin star. There is another gatehouse, which is now a museum. And Huijbergen itself is now a commuter village.
