May 2019

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 Charlotte, Isobel and Margaret for leading a walk in April. A special thank you to Christa for inviting us at her home after the walk.

Paulette's walk in Woluwe's park on May 6th

Who knows the name of these lovely trees? It was a pleasure to rediscover the Woluwe park in his spring cloak before taking the old railway path and finishing our walk just before the rain on the veranda of La Brasserie des Etangs Mellaerts.

Christa and Paulette's walk in Lasne on Easter Monday

Easter Monday was a glorious day. The weather was so warm and pleasant that it could have been summer! Christa came to join us for a very nice walk and invited us afterwards for a refreshing home made drink accompanied by lovely pieces of carrot cake. Many thanks again dear Christa for your ongoing generosity

Charlotte's walk at Groenendaal on Friday 19th April

The bluebells have appeared in the forest at Groenendaal. Thank you Charlotte for leading a very nice walk.



The walkers were very lucky to see a barn owl on the ground, probably a very young one who fell off  the tree. Let's hope its mother was not too far.

Paulette's walk in Neerijse on Monday 15th April

We were very lucky on Monday to be able to see the lovely alleys of cherry trees in bloom.
After the walk, we went for a coffee to the tavern Rochus and it was so pleasantly warm that we decided to enjoy our coffee on the terrace:))
