Susan's Bertem walk

Never let it be said a Wicwalk was cancelled because of a spot of rain...or even litres of it per m2.
Four keen walkers donned waterproof gear and braved the deluge, plus the odd peal of thunder.
Not singing (fortunately!), just grinning in the rain.
Finally we ran out of terra firma and had to admit defeat and change our route - though had we thought of it we might have turned that outsize umbrella upside down and sailed on our way.
Great walk Susan - thanks!

Anne's walk in Tervuren Park

Bright sunlight shining through copper beech leaves greeted us as we entered the park.
The walkers were very excited by a beautiful perfumed philadelphus shrub, and didn't want to face the camera.....
We had a lovely walk and enjoyed our coffee in the sunshine on the terrace at the Spanish House.

Janet's wettish walk from Dreve du Comte

The morning had been consistently wet and miserable, so I was delighted that there were 10 of us when we set off on our afternoon walk.

We made a short detour, which actually adds nearly half an hour to the walk, to the Parc Solvay to admire the beautiful roses.  But they weren't out.  However, fortune was with us and after winning the mighty climb up the parc's steep hill we were met by a glorious display of azaleas and rhododendrons.

The parc is also hosting a collection of modern art: pictured is an impressive gold and silver iceberg!

Joan's Three Communes Walk at Tervuren

We met today at a new parking spot in Tervuren.   It was pleasant for walking even with a very light drizzle from time to time.   The walk passed through the communes of Tervuren,  up to Duisburg and back down Vossem where we followed the Voer back into the park.   Sheila and her group were already at The Spanish House Café when we arrived for our coffee.

Joan's Walk at Groenendael

Eight ladies enjoyed the walk this afternoon through the delightful forest at Groenendael.   After eight kilometres we enjoyed the deserved drinks in the shady garden of the cafe

Paulette's walk at Château de La Hulpe

A glorious day in the park of Château de La Hulpe.

  The azaleas are beginning to bloom. We'll have to come back in 2 weeks

The hats were out in force

A big group and a lovely day to walk in the Arboretum of Jesus Eik.
The beech were displaying their beautiful spring colours.
