Today was a surprise day as nothing went the way we planned. Nevertheless or maybe because of that, it was kind of exciting. First of all, our usual café Het Plein was closed, so we hoped the one in the Fabriekstraat midway through the walk would be open (which turned out to be a pious hope). From the beginning we were faced with a big dilemma. Our lovely path along the little river had disappeared in a mixture of holes, mud, planks because of demolition and reconstruction works. But we persevered audaciously to get to the other site of the excavation as we knew the little river was our point of reference. And we were rewarded from our efforts because suddenly we found ourselves in terra cognita. Afterwards the walk was as enchanting as ever with a little diversion here and there, sometimes on purpose sometimes by accident. The last and loveliest surprise of the day was to see a group of carthorses including a newborn. All in all a real mystery walk, all the more as we had to repair to Vastiau Godeau to get a cuppa.

Here we are:
Here are a couple of close-ups of two of our regular doggy walkers - first Truffles, who would only stop still long enough for a photo if bribed with doggy treats!
Milky, our second doggy, decided that having a ride from Yuko might be more fun than walking in the heat!
And here's Truffles after an unscheduled swim in a rather muddy water hole - the photo doesn't really do justice to the change of colour of his legs!
