November 2018

All walks start at 1 p.m. and take about 2 hours. Of course, as always, they are subject to change in the weather. So please check here on the blog before you head out to ensure that the walk leader has not made any last minute adjustments to her plans. 
Sturdy shoes are recommended. Several walkers find trekking poles useful, particularly if the paths are wet or muddy. Dogs on leads are welcome on our walks. Where forest/parkland zoning rules allow, you may take off the lead, with the agreement of the walk leader, but the dog must be well behaved and stay close to its owner.

Many thanks to Ingrid, Isobel, Joan and Liz  for leading a walk in October and especially to Alyane for hosting our annual Charity Walk and Lunch
Beware: the Walking group  Christmas lunch is planned for December 7

The Charity Lunch

We were all disappointed that Paulette, who had done so much to organise this walk and lunch to raise money for the WIC Charities, could not be with us, and we send her our condolences for her loss and look forward to having her back with us on Friday.

Thank you to Liz for leading us on a lovely autumnal walk in Tervuren, we kept off the main paths in attempt to keep warmer amongst the trees!

And of course many many thanks to Alyane for making us so welcome and for hosting the lunch.  Everything was ready for us when we arrived, and all we had to do was pop our offerings down on the table and help ourselves.  It was lovely to see so many people, and we hope that we will have found a couple of new walkers as well!

Paulette is responsible for the money and will no doubt let us all know how much we have raised in total.

Here are some pictures from the day - I have not included any of us eating as everyone was so busy digging in that the photos are not very flattering!



More Food!

Liz's Walk in Tervuren

The weather today was a bit chilly at the start and there was even unexpected rain where we had to shelter under the trees.   We did, however, sit out at the Spanish House for our drinks.  

Thank you Liz for leading us on a very pleasant walk  through the forest today

Joan's Walk at Huldenberg

It turned out to be very hot for the walk today with not much shade so we were all very glad to get to the finish.   Our usual cafe was closed but there was another nearby,  phew.

We had the bonus of seeing 'Muffin' the friendly mule

Charlotte's walk from Brugge to Damme

Today was an exceptionally interesting day, thanks to Charlotte. 
We took the train to Brugge and from there walked to Damme along the canal past many different mills. The weather was perfect and the scenery beautiful. In Damme, Charlotte had organised a very nice lunch for us at "Tante Marie".  Around 3pm, we took a nice little riverboat back to Brugge whilst enjoying the fresh air and chatting all the way. We were all charmed by cute little Lion, Yuko's Scotch terrier, who behaved so well.
Thank you so much, Charlotte, for organising this lovely outing and thank you to all the photographers for their nice photographs.
