After an enjoyable afternoon, we went to the Cafe Homme Bleu for coffee, where we met up with three ladies who had taken a shorter walk.
Sorry ladies that there are no photographs today owing to author's lack of technical skill!

Thank you Deborah for leading a very nice walk in the Woluwe area, different from the one we traditionally have.

At long last the mild weather has reappeared and we had a lovely walk on the cobblestone paths of Ohain. 19 of us enjoyed the effort on the somewhat hilly walk, that meanders along narrow cuttings between properties. Snowdrops and crocus are in full bloom, so spring is indeed on the way. We met up with Sheila at a quaint tearoom in the centre of Lasne and sat at long tables, enjoying authentic hot chocolate made in a pan just like the good old days.

Today Lydia and Lori took 15 of us through the nice surroundings of the Bois de la Cambre. Thank you both for a lovely varied walk. A nice opportunity to say a final - and moving - au revoir to Sandy who is leaving Belgium next week. The winter foliage allowed us a glimpse of the ULB tower and the sumptuous properties on the av. Roosevelt. Lydia pointed out a new restaurant called Wood that we could try out next time and showed us many unusual ins and outs of the wood.
Refreshments were taken in a rather more elegant brasserie than usual. No long wooden tables here but comfortable banquettes. Sheila and the easy walkers were already waiting for us. The cappuccini were the real deal! Thank you to Lydia and Sandy for the nice photographs.

This Friday was indeed a special walk as it was led by one of our newer walkers, Veronique! Not only did she do a marvelous job taking us around her neighborhood and beyond but she also entertained us with many home made delicasies in her comfortable home afterwards. Our "many thanks, Veronique" for such a lovely afternoon. The skies might have been leden but our spirits were high and we all had a marvelous time. Our 2 hour walk took us through some back areas of Tervuren as well as Moorsel and we were even able to check in with the horses in the stables nearby. This was reminicent of our "carrot walks" of the past.
Our walk ended at Veronique's home where we met up with the Easy Walkers. All of us were able to enjoy our hostesses home made treats which she so lovingly prepared for us to enjoy! She had set up a nice long table for us on her sun porch so that we could all be together. We therefore stayed around for quite a while enjoying the afternoon. Paulette thanked our hostess on behalf of all the WIC Walkers. It is always wonderful when one of our walkers choses to entertain us in her home!!! Can we come back next week???
