Where's the slot for the quarter?

Isn't it true that the best things in life are free?

At first I didn't know what this was
Then I took a look through and only saw trees.
I'm as gullible as the next guy when it comes to viewing binoculars at scenic overlooks. If I have a quarter I drop it in. The verdict is almost always the same:

Maybe I should have saved my money instead.


Here's the ruins of an old water powered mill
And it somehow doesn't it always cheapen the entire experience?

That's why I was so happy to run across a "free" viewing window along a bike path near Kelmis, Belgium. It frames the place beside the lake where an old water-powered mill once stood.

It doesn't take long for nature to take over

Behind it, and unmistakable to the ear, was the sound of running water, also part of the old industrial landmark.

Talk about getting my money's worth!
