January 2020

Happy 2020 to all!

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 Isobel, Kyung-Sook  and Yuko for leading a walk in December

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.

Paulette's walk at Château de la Hulpe on November 8th

What a gorgeous day at Château de la Hulpe today. Autumn is there in all its splendour. We are so lucky to be able to walk in the forest during the week. Not many people are around.

What am I? A bird disguised into a mushroom or a mushroom looking like a bird!!!
