Paulette's walk in Bertem on Friday 30th November

Today was very misty...  and cold. Nevertheless we all enjoyed our walk in Bertem. 

Thank you Lydia for the lovely photographs.

What about this fluffy and cuddly sheep!!

Janet's Walk from Dreve du Comte

Janet led her 'usual' forest walk from Dreve du Compte, which she preceded with a lecture on watching our footing as the paths would be covered with leaves hiding protruding roots.  Naturally, after this dire warning, the recent wind and rain had swept the paths clear, and all the leaves were now neatly piled where they should be - amongst the trees!

As the ING building has been sold and will be converted to a maison de repos, we have been forced to find somewhere else to have our post-walk drinks.  Today we drove to The Repos des Chasseurs, although sadly we seemed to lose Naomi en-route.

In a bit of a twist we arrived before Sheila and Elizabeth, who did a longer walk than us!

Friday 23rd November: Naomi's Walk

Many thanks to Naomi for leading us on a strenuous 2 hour walk!  It was an interesting mix of familiar paths mixed with twists and turns we don't normally take - very interesting and healthy!

Not so healthy was the wonderful selection of cakes and biscuits that followed, all of which needed to be tasted!

Thank you Naomi for  making us so welcome!

Gisela's Walk in Neerijse on Monday 19 November

Many thanks to Gisela for the lovely long and varied walk from Neerijse!  It really is a very nice route - and not just because it ends at Cafe Rochus!  However, the photos do not do justice to the quantity of mud that we found ourselves navigating through and around at various points!

Paulette's walk in the Gaillemarde area on 9th November

Thanks to Sheila's good piece of advice, we discovered a lovely walk in the sumptuous nature around Gaillemarde.

Moreover we found a new cafe to rest our feet and enjoy a cup of good coffee or chocolate.
