Margaret's walk from rue Nisard

Despite leaden skies and a public transport strike, a large group turned out to enjoy the first few flakes of snow of the year.
Everyone came well prepared for the cold.  

Undaunted by the large beast lurking in the trees ...
... we set off briskly in the opposite direction.

 The forest was lovely under its dusting of snow.

 And a nice hot drink afterwards just what we needed.

Janet’s walk in the Foret de Soignes from Dreve du Comte

Today's walk in the forest was entirely along, sometimes muddy, pedestrian tracks. It was brisk walking weather, so we kept up a good pace keen to get to our coffee! Fortunately the rain held off until we had our drinks in front of us!

Was this climb really as steep as it looks in the photo?

And at the end we were delighted to meet up with Sheila's group who were already settled in the cafe when we arrived.

Paulette's walk in Genval on January 20th 2012

Although the walk around the lake of Genval offers very nice views from start to finish, the photographer didn't stop very often to take pictures. You can see why. It rained all the time but everybody was happy to get out for a good workout. Generally speaking it takes more of an effort to go and walk alone when the weather is bad than to be with a group of good friends. Thanks to Melly's knowledge of the area, we ventured on new paths in the wood which made the walk more interesting.
Weren't we glad to take a seat in the Shangri-la restaurant? The owner is so welcoming and the atmosphere colourful with a lovely view on the lake

Joan's Walk - Jezus Eik - 16th January

Twenty five ladies arrived at one of our most popular areas. It was a most delightful day for walking through the forest as there was sun and no wind. We had to go 'off piste' for part of the walk to escape the mud. We were such a large group that we could not all sit together at the one long table in Istas

Paulette's walk in Overijse on 13th January 2012

18 ladies joined the walk in the sunken lanes of Overijse. The sky was blue, the air was crisp and everybody enjoyed the exercise. For some of us it was a first in Overijse and also a first in 2012. It was also a nice way to work on the Christmas calories! It began to drizzle at the end of the walk and we were all very happy to sit down and enjoy the nice little glass of advokaat offered with the refreshments. at the "Koffiehuis".
