Our refreshments stop at the Tavern Rochus in Huldenberg provided a much needed respit after the walk in the 28C heat and humidity! We revived with our cool drinks as we enjoyed sharing some more time together. We were pleased to welcome Lydia's guest, Veronique (2nd right) on the walk today! She seemed to survive quite well ...

Sorry ladies, here is another photo from behind! It was beautiful and a bit cooler in the Watermael-Boitsfort section of the Foret de Soignes this sunny afternoon. We haven't seen this amount of sun in some time so we all enjoyed it!!!
All sixteen of us stopped and posed for this photo at the beginning of our walk this afternoon in front of the pond before we hit the trail with Sandy on the left and Sonia on the right and all the walkers in between! Sandy led the group and Sonia furnished refreshments for us all at the conclusion what a good combination on this summer's day when the temperature reached 27C. We also welcomed a new walker, Janette, (3rd left). We hope she will join us soon again.
Our "many thanks" go to Sonia (center), our hostess this afternoon who took such good care of all of us. She provided nice, cold lemon tea and waters which help to quench our thrists after our hour and a half walk as well as coffee for those who wanted it. In addition, she had cookies, pound cake and ripe fresh cherries which were wonderful for a hot summer afternoon.

It had been awhile since some of us had last visited and for the new walkers it was very much fun to tour Christa's very fine recently redesigned landscaping!!! There was so much to see and so many nice spots to enjoy the views on perhaps sunnier days.
Eight of us were able to gather around Christa's dining table which she had already set up for us in advance to share the delicious fruit tarts she had prepared for us. It is always our great pleasure to enjoy Christa's splendid hospitality. "Thanks, Christa"!

Although no walk was scheduled for the Belgian holiday on Monday, July 21st, a number of walkers expressed their interest in participating in one if a walk were to be offered.
PS: Vyvyan would like to know if anyone lost some cash in the hall outside the apartment at Sheila's on the 7th of this month? If so, please contact her with the amount.

We left Christa's neighborhood and were soon in the forest nearby. Here Christa (left) leads us at the start of our trek which lasted about 2 hours. Although we had a bit of rain before we left on the walk we were fortunate that we had none while we were on it. To see some additional photos taken later at Christa's home by Dolphine Click Here!
