Paulette's walk in the Woluwe park on 16th March

Three of us joined me for a reinvigorating walk in the lovely Woluwe park today. We walked two by two to ensure sufficient distance between us.
It was a breath of fresh air in these worrying times. Daffodils were everywhere to be seen, a pleasure for the eyes. Thank you for your nice photograph, Anne.

Paulette's walk in the forest from Rue Nisard 28th February

Today's walk clearly showed us the aftermath of the recent storms: fallen trees on the paths, broken branches everywhere, slippy underfoot. so glad no one got stuck in the mud!

Isobel's Walk on 17th February

Thank you Isobel for a lovely walk amongst the trees - both upright and fallen!  Unfortunately we were all to busy negotiating branches and brambles to stop and take photos, but we certainly saw evidence of the recent storm damage.

It was a mostly blue and beautiful day, and the two short sharp downpours didn't dampen our enthusiasm!

Paulette's walk at Jesus Eik on 14th February

We did the "Koninglijke Wandeling" at the Arboretum of Jesus Eik. Nice long walk, 2 full hours, with an enthusiastic group.

Paulette's walk at Rouge-Cloître on 7th February

A record number of ladies turned up at the Rouge-Cloître this Friday, the sunniest and warmest day of a very grey and rainy week. We had the pleasure of welcoming Arlette and Tyrell, new walkers, whom we hope to see regularly. After the walk we stopped for a nice chat and lovely tea in the cosy atmosphere of the welcoming taverne du Rouge-Cloître.

Paulette's walk in Overijse on 24th January 2020

It was cold today. Everybody was well wrapped up. But a brisk walk kept us warm. Nevertheless, we were all very happy to put our feet up at Paulette's for a coffee and a cookie.

Paulette's walk at Jesus Eik on 13th January

Today we had 14 ladies walking for nearly 2 hours in the Forêt de Soignes at Jesus Eik. We tried different paths and enjoyed the change. The timing was perfect since the rain only appeared when we were sitting together inside a café drinking our coffee with gusto.

Kyung-Sook's Walk from Under the E411

Many thanks to Kyung-Sook for stepping in to lead us today, we had a lovely walk and took some smaller paths under the trees that I had not been on before.

And we were pleased to welcome one walker who was not due to be with us today: we are sorry she missed her lunch and hope that she will not catch the flu from her husband.

On a more serious note, our thoughts were with Joyce, and the walkers who could not be with us because they were supporting their close friend this afternoon.

What the well dressed dog is wearing this season.


Loving this photo!   To be fair, we were all saying "Quick, while Truffles is looking at you!"

Take 2!

Kyung-Sook's walk at Rouge-Cloître

Three of us (plus Truffles) enjoyed a lovely walk, keeping up a good pace to beat the cold.
Lucky no-one was passing by when this happened!
At the stables the animals were locked up safe and warm, but some were keeping an eye out.
Is Christmas over yet???
Thanks to Germana for this lovely photo and to Kyung-Sook for a terrific walk.
