Paulette's walk from Overijse to Hoeilaart

This fungus is an anamita muscaria (well spot, Germana!), renowned for its toxicity and its hallucinogenic properties.

Margaret's walk from rue Nisard

A lovely day for a walk on a route we know well, with something new to see this time.
Welcome to the forest.  
And an unusually warm welcome with our hot drinks afterwards!

Gisela's walk in Huldenburg

Thank you Gisela for a lovely energetic walk through the beautiful countryside near Huldenberg.  It was a warm and sunny afternoon, and we enjoyed our coffee on the terrace of Cafe Rochus.

Janet's Walk at La Hulpe

We were delighted to have three new members of the walking group today, well, 1 new and two (not-so) old!  Jane was back in Brussels for a week to visit her grand-daughter, and we were very happy that she took time out from her grandmothering duties to join us.  We were also very pleased to welcome Mary back and Andrea on her first walk with us.  However, we sadly missed Melly, who knew the grounds of La Hulpe so well.

Sheila was walking with Heidi today, and we were delighted to run into them! And they into us before they reached the path they were heading for which has now been closed.

Paulette's walk in Woluwe

It was raining hard when we began the walk along the Woluwe stream but it didn't discourage the walkers even those who only had an umbrella but no raincoat.
From time to time the sun appeared in the sky warming the air but we reasonably decided to shorten the walk before the next downpour and have a hot coffee in Equant, our favourite café in the area,  where the waitress always offers us a nice piece of cake. What a treat!

Paulette's walk in Villers-La-Ville

Another nice walk in Villers-La-Ville. 
It was a first time for this group of ladies and they all enjoyed it a lot.

What a cute idea to grow plants!

Another walk in lovely Tervuren park

Despite the problems on some roads in Brussels, nine ladies enjoyed a fine dry walk around all the lakes in Tervuren park.  Several of us cooled off afterwards with delicious ice creams at Mont Blanc, where we were warmly welcomed as always.

Paulette's walk in the Forêt de Soignes from Overijse


After a brisk walk of two hours, we were very glad to have our traditional coffee at the warm and welcoming Royal Country Club house on Welriekende Dreef.
