Sint-Gertrudiskerk in the Distance

Church and Tree From Menneweg, Kalken, BelgiumJust south of Kalken, Belgium, are open fields, which were once farmed, but are now mostly covered with grasses and the occasional shrub or tree row or cluster. To get to the fields, we walked along Menneweg, which runs south from the main road of Vaartstraat (N407) and into the open fields where it eventually becomes a dirt road. Close to the end of the paved portion, I saw a church in the distance.

    You now know more than me! I need a zoom lens I decided!

    • I found out which church using Google maps. I placed the little man on the road to figure out the direction of the church. In the process, I got to see the fields area again with beautiful blue sky and puffy clouds. I love that Google feature!
