June 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 Joan, Isobel, Liz, Margaret and Mona for leading a walk in May

There will be a walk followed by a picnic on June 22nd

Paulette's walk in Ohain/lasne

Thank you, dear Christa, for a lovely afternoon tea at your wonderful home. You spoiled our little group of courageous walkers who braved the constant rain and drizzle this Friday afternoon.

Paulette's walk in the Arboretum in Jesus Eik

Since there were less walkers than usual, we decided to try a different walk and discovered new paths in the middle of the Arboretum. We all loved it but were very happy at the end to relax on the terrace of Bosuil.

Paulette's walk in Ittre

Beautiful day in Ittre. 
A little bit too warm maybe but it felt fresh on the paths in the little woods.
Nice meeting with two cute poneys: mother and son!
Thank you Germana and Janet for your photos!

Paulette's walk at Château de La Hulpe

Another nice day in the parc of Château de La Hulpe. Just in time to admire the first blooming azaleas amongst different shades of greens. The yellow ones particularly exuded a wonderful fragrance. Next time we will have the opportunity to see bushes of rhododendrons.

Paulette's walk in Neerijse

Another beautiful place we cannot miss in the spring because of its three magnificent alleys of blossoming cherry trees.

Paulette's walk in Bois de Halle (Hallerbos)

What a wonderful day we had last Friday. The Bois de Halle was at its best. Lilac bluebells everywhere under the pale green beeches. Many people already. We were lucky to be there on a week day :)
