The beech hedge Les Charmilles is the longest one of Belgium, with a length of 573 m. This green tunnel consists of 4700 beeches, 60 to 70% of them are older than hundred years. The tree hedge was cultivated in 1885 on behalf of J. R. Nys, a former entrepreneur.

I love Belgium, and my navigation system in my car allso. Small roads of this kind leading to the parking area and no sign like 'no access for vehicles' as mostly seen in Germany. So I started this cache right at the noble lady. The beech hedge is really charming! I couldn't relax on the bench at it's end. It was allready taken by some old Belgian ladies. So just a short 'bonjour' and I disappeared in the forest beside the astonished old girls. Thanks for the cache!
No trade. (subsequent NC log)

The third Cpt.Cook cache for today, and a very interesting one. This cache was little more difficult than the others today, but after 2 minutes of seeking it was found.
Thank You once again, Cpt. Cook
