It hardly seems a year since the last charity walk and lunch. Time passes so quickly. This year Françoise kindly volunteered to host our lunch. You can see us all gathered around the pool in her lovely garden. The weather had turned out quite nicely by then but not nice enough for a dip in the pool.
The weather was a bit dull but otherwise fair when we started walking but that did not last for long before it became quite breezy and the showers of rain started. I was surprised at how much open space there is behind the Chaussée de Louvain in St Stevens Woluwe.
As you can see we needed our umbrellas again for a short time. The highlight of our walk was spotting an owl in one of the trees at the side of the pathway. We really got quite excited but the owl seemed quite unperturbed by our presence. The photos are not very clear but you can just see him in the tree. If you click on the image to enlarge it you will perhaps see more clearly.
Once again the WIC walkers put on a great buffet for our charity lunch (well done us!) and it was smiles all round as we were about to tuck in. Sheila and Paulette presented Françoise with a bouquet of flowers as a token of our appreciation for her generous hospitality. Thank you Paulette for organising everything and once again a big "thank you" to Françoise.
