The weather was better today. It was less cold and it didn't rain which is a bonus. A good day to walk in one of Sandy's favourite spots: the forest from the back of the Chateau de la Hulpe. Yuko's lovely and fluffy doggy accompanied us this time. What a brave little thing! Imagine walking 8 kms at our rhythm on his little paws. Well he did it!
We are always stunned by the beauty of the Chateau when it appears out of the distance as we round a bend. The sun monument has been repainted in a warm yellow which gives colour to the landscape around it. The Taverne de l'Homme Bleu was waiting for us to have a nice chat with Sheila's group while having their real "chocolat chaud" and the lovely surprise of the day was that Ingeborg brought a big box of chocolates to share with us. Is there anything better than a delicious Belgian praline to accompany your drink in the middle of the day after a nice walk. Well, maybe two pralines...???
