What happened to the sun???? It actually got quite chilly as we waited for our refreshments. We managed to arrive at the tennis club without interferance as we took our usual "shortcut" .. to get there. Well, Denise, Anne and Joan seem to be enjoying their "Chose"! We were soon to join them.
Well, I think all 12 of us would probably agree that it was "Costas" our Vibrant Waiter who made our afternoon stop at the Intero Tennis Club such an lively occasion today! Martha has decided to expand on this idea with her Friday walk on Sept. 21st!!! For those who can join her that day she is proposing to start the walk at 11am (instead of our usual 1pm) at the Boitsfort train station and end at the Intero Tennis Club for lunch!!! Sounds like a great idea ... Thanks, Martha...

Just one of the bucolic scenes we encountered on today's new walk in St. Agatha Rode near Huldenberg. Our many "thanks" to Sheila for working this out for us! We look forward to more new adventures ... For Dolphine's photos CLICK HERE
Not even a huge tree across our path could slow down the group for long this afternoon. Sheila blazed the trail by sliding between the barbed wire fence and the enormous tree trunk with its numerous branches. Most of us carried some pine needles as well as the scent of fresh Christmas trees with us for the rest of the day!

Yes, most of us indulged in a treat this afternoon ... tarte de pomme, crepe, or Belgian waffle ... after such a great walk we all deserved it! Our cafe was on the main square in Huldenberg and we were treated with very fine service. Sheila ... when can we do another walk in this area???

Sheila had it right this afternoon. By the end of the walk we were all wishing we had worn shorts! The humidity made us feel just that much more uncomfortable. It was beautiful in the Foret de Soignes though with the sunshine breaking through the trees and the leaves casting shadows everywhere.

This was the perfect spot to end our walk today on the grounds of the Chateau de la Hulpe. We sat on the terrace of the cafe l"Homme Bleu across from the Museum Folon and enjoyed the weather and view until the clouds rolled in later. We never did get rain though the skies did look threatening.

There were 12 of us this afternoon to help Sheila try out this new walk. It was a real treat to find so many interesting and picturesque vistas to enjoy on our way. We also passed the vineyards of the Chardonnary grapes of Meerdael Click Here for More Info
