September 2018

Change of schedule

From the 1st September, our walks will resume at 1 p.m. instead of 11 a.m.
They usually 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, Joan, and Kyung-Sook for leading a walk in August

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.

Paulette's walk in Villers-La-Ville

 Three ladies  joined me last Friday to (re) discover the lovely surroundings of Villers-La-Ville under a blue sky. After walking some time in the woods of Villers, we admired cute little houses in  Court-St-Etienne from where we had a view of the village of Tangissart. A train overtook us not far from the end of the circuit and Janet had the chance to caress one of her favourites little friends. 
At the end of our 2 hours walk we were glad to sit outside the brasserie opposite the abbey to eat a delicious French baguette while relaxing.
