Bonnie's walk at Zoete Water on 21st May

Bonnie led us to discover a really nice walk in a new area today. Thank you, Bonnie.
Zoete Water used to be the place where the population of Leuven came for entertainment, fresh air and pure water. The story goes that anyone drinking the spring water from Zoete Water will be married by the end of the year. Today it is a charming and still popular country place with small lakes, lots of cafes and a very nice restaurant called the Spaanse Dak. The walk went through woods and across fields, past a country chapel (see photo) where mass is still celebrated. Near the chapel we had the visit of a small but very friendly squirrel, apparently fearless and quite excited at the thought of appearing in photo form on the WIC walking blog! Sheila and her group met up with us on the terrace next to the Spaanse Dak. How wonderful to have the warm weather back!
