Janet's Walk & Museum Visit at La Hulpe

Eleven of us got up for an early start ... well 10.30am ... out at La Hulpe so that we could have a walk before a lunch and a visit to the 15th Anniversary Exhibition at the Fondation Folon.

Although there were a few damp feet due to the early morning dew (HUGE apologies), we had a very pleasant walk in the autumnal sunny morning.

We were very happy to meet up with Sheila, Keith & Heidi for lunch before we all went into the exhibition and then wandered around in smaller groups appreciating this exhibition.

The exhibition was, to quote one of our group, "whimsical and magical".  We were delighted to see sketches which had never before been exhibited, and to appreciate Folon's sense of humour.  We also noticed that his early interest in architecture was evident in his clear line drawings.

Anne's walk in Tervuren park

13 walkers enjoyed the beautiful autumn colours around the lakes in Tervuren park.  It was a mild and dry autumn day and we walked at a good pace.
We were warmly welcomed at Mont Blanc, as always, and today we all received THREE chocolates with our coffee!

Margaret's Tervuren/Wezembeek walk

Just four of us ventured out on this grey and chilly day, but we soon had company.
Khan, 3 months old, was happy to stop and chat but less inclined to sit and pose for the camera. Off he goes...

Near the Hippodrome we saw -
well, horses naturally, but also signs that giant moles may have invaded the racecourse...

This was before stopping at a new café, where the pints were too cold to lift with the bare hand. Cheers!

Only kidding of course - just a novel way of serving hot tea!

Paulette's walk in Neerijse

The walk in Neerijse was a "première" for most ladies in the group and they all enjoyed it thoroughly since we were very lucky with the weather.
