      It's started. Literally and figuratively. Because the walk of wisdom has the shape of a dove and the head I walked today.
      With the train to Nijmegen and started from the station. The first part was hard to find because the angel that has to point out the direction is not so easy to notice in such a busy city. It was good that I had a gpx file.
      Then along the Waal. It was busy on the river and busy on the hiking trail. The Ooijpolder was beautiful but there were a lot of paths really muddy. This kept repeating itself and that made it a bit annoying at times.
      The weather was fantastic and the temperature even warm at times.
      The views were truly to be enjoyed.
      Because I had started a little later in the day, so today until Beek. Like I said.....the head is off. 👍

      We left early to take a detour to Den Bosch and run an errand there. Good excuse. It was quite chilly on the bike. Wonderfully quiet until I arrived in Den Bosch. I was glad I was done soon and could continue.
      I drove through some small streets and at the City Brewers 't Kolleke on the Kruisstraat a huge line of people was waiting until the Jumbo on the Stationsweg. And that at half past eleven in the morning.
      Further on at the Groot a long line for the Bossche Bollen.
      On the way back, have a cup of coffee with mom and then go home.

      Sleen is a beautiful village; old farms have been converted into impressive houses. From Sleen you walk into South Drenthe. There used to be an inaccessible peat swamp here. The path follows old peat canals such as the Verlengde Hoogeveensevaart. Peat ships brought the dried peat as fuel to the cities.From Dalerveen you walk through a 'liberated' country on your way to Coevorden. For centuries this was a strong fortified city in the vast swamp to guard and defend the national borders. In Coevorden, only a few traces of this military past can be recognized in the compact center.

      The route runs through Boswachterij Sleenerzand, which consists of peat and wet heath, interrupted by fens and ponds. Some moors on the route have previously been plowed and turned into fields.About halfway through, you cross the Oranje Canal, 44 kilometers long and dug between 1852 and 1858. After the canal, the path leads through the forest. When you come out of the forest and see the fields around you, you can already see the church tower of beautiful Sleen in the distance, the end point of this stage.There are a number of nice Bed & Breakfasts in Sleen.

      The sixth stage of the Pieterpad starts in Schoonloo. With a length of 24 kilometers this stage is the longest on part one of the Pieterpad. Also make sure you don't come across any villages or towns along the way, so it's smart to pack plenty of food and drink for a break along the way.Schoonloo is almost completely surrounded by forest and it is therefore not surprising that the first part of your walk goes through the forest. The forests in the region have sprung up. About a hundred years ago there was a lot of unemployment in our country in general, and in this region in particular. The creation of these forests was therefore a job creation project. The heath that originally lay here has been dug up by human hands to plant trees. During the digging, many stones were excavated. These stones and boulders are also called flints and are used in forest roads. These roads are also called flint roads.

      As far as Groningen you walk through the former wadden region with mounds such as Oostum and Wierum. Here the agricultural economy is mainly based on cattle breeding, you walk through a meadow landscape to the edge of the city of Groningen.You cross the Reitdiep twice, the river that connected Groningen with the sea. Groningen starts past the large Van Starckeborgh Canal; first with the Rijksuniversiteit area, then new residential areas and high-rise buildings with city parks.The old center behind the historic quay with warehouses is a big surprise. Take the time to look around.

      The landscape of Pieterburen is wide and open, with a very fertile sea clay bottom. The sea deposited this clay here. It was a Wadden area that was flooded at high tide; with each flood it added a layer. The region is also called "The High Country". The transport was by water, over canals created by the action of ebb and flow.People lived on wierden, these are mountains of refuge at high tide. Whole villages are built on it. The dikes along the sea have been high and safe since 1880. Eenrum is the first characteristic mound village on the way to the south. You mainly see arable farming and large farms.The first stage goes to Winsum, a double mound village with Obergum.

      If you have the time, you can take a circular walk from Pieterburen to the Wadden coast.You can consider this walk as a warm-up, a prologue. The route is not part of the Pieterpad itself, and is only included in the guide as a suggestion. So the route is not described in the guide or marked in the field. The outward route to the dike uses the Dutch Coastal Path and is marked white/red. When you arrive at the coast, make sure that you do not follow this marking any further, otherwise you will end up in Germany.N.B.: dogs are not allowed on the part of the route over the Wadden dike.

      Just did all the small errands while walking. Beautiful weather, you smell autumn. Just a few km before tomorrow another part of the Pieterpad will be in front of the door.

      Enjoy a nice walk and flutter with a colleague (chatting in sign language). Didn't meet anyone. Completely quiet. Enjoy a breath of fresh air without any wind. 😉
