It was very humid in the woods and at one point you could almost see the steam coming out of the ground. We saw one large tree that had been blown down in the storm and the workmen were doing their best to clear it up as fast as possible. As we were walking along we could hear great merriment in the background and very soon we realised there were children having great fun with a character dressed in what looked like a St Nicolas costume. Strange in the month of August, don't you think?
We were all feeling very peckish today and everyone had something to eat. The crepes are good in this place. I don't know who the guy in the background is but I didn't have the heart to cut him out of the photo as he posed so very nicely. Thanks for leading the walk Jane and I hope you were in time to catch your connection to England!!

Since summer keeps marching on and we struggle to keep going in the heat of Georgia ... I wanted to send a big "Hello" to the WIC Walkers from the Walk'n Talk Newcomers Walking group in Georgia from this week's Wednesday outing!
The ladies here are jealous to see the WIC walkers wearing blue jeans and occasion jackets while we dress as lightly as possible. We often follow with refreshments around a table at a Starbucks or similar type of café!
Enjoy seeing what you all are up to on the blog. Keep Walking!

On Monday a few of us decided to brave the changeable weather and head out on Margaret's walk around Wezembeek/Tervuren. Margaret had planned a new walk in Braine l'Alleud but as there are roadworks on the Ring at the moment it will kept for another day.
We were lucky the rain held off until the end of the walk as most of the terrain was a bit exposed but lovely nonetheless. We started off at the terminus of the 39 tram, passed by fields of corn, some lovely houses and I could not resist taking a photo of a huge datura plant sitting in front of a garage door.
