Walk schedule in August

The walks will continue to start at 11 a.m. as per our normal summer schedule . Please always check here on the blog before you head out to ensure that the walk leader has not made any last minute adjustments to her plans. 
Sturdy shoes are recommended. Several walkers find trekking poles useful, particularly if the paths are wet or muddy. Dogs on leads are welcome on our walks. Where forest/parkland zoning rules allow, you may take off the lead, with the agreement of the walk leader, but the dog must be well behaved and stay close to its owner.

Paulette's walk at Château de la Hulpe on July 24th

Today was a perfect day to walk. We expected rain but the weather turned out to be mild and sunny.
Since there were only 4 of us, we took the opportunity to discover other paths in the forest.

Paulette's walk in Neerijse on 13th July

The nice thing about Neerijse is that the landscape is so bucolic and varied. Little paths crossing fields or woods, along cristal clear streams, smiling faces. A lovely walk indeed.

Paulette's walk in the Forêt de Soignes from Bois de la Cambre on Monday 6th July

One of the advantages of walking in the morning in July and August is that we can easily park in the Bois de la Cambre.  It was nice to rediscover this lovely park that stretches to the Forêt de Soignes at its end.

The Walking group is active again. We have walked 3 times already since June 19th with 2 groups of 6 or 7 walkers each time, according to the rules issued by the "Comité de Sécurité belge" ( 10 persons maximum per group). Many thanks to Cynthia, Joan,  Isobel, Kyung-Sook  and Margaret for helping me to lead smaller groups. Thanks to your solidarity, all the walkers who wanted to participate in the walks could do so in safety.

Paulette's walk in the Woluwe park on 16th March

Three of us joined me for a reinvigorating walk in the lovely Woluwe park today. We walked two by two to ensure sufficient distance between us.
It was a breath of fresh air in these worrying times. Daffodils were everywhere to be seen, a pleasure for the eyes. Thank you for your nice photograph, Anne.

Paulette's walk in the forest from Rue Nisard 28th February

Today's walk clearly showed us the aftermath of the recent storms: fallen trees on the paths, broken branches everywhere, slippy underfoot. so glad no one got stuck in the mud!

Isobel's Walk on 17th February

Thank you Isobel for a lovely walk amongst the trees - both upright and fallen!  Unfortunately we were all to busy negotiating branches and brambles to stop and take photos, but we certainly saw evidence of the recent storm damage.

It was a mostly blue and beautiful day, and the two short sharp downpours didn't dampen our enthusiasm!

Paulette's walk at Jesus Eik on 14th February

We did the "Koninglijke Wandeling" at the Arboretum of Jesus Eik. Nice long walk, 2 full hours, with an enthusiastic group.

Paulette's walk at Rouge-Cloître on 7th February

A record number of ladies turned up at the Rouge-Cloître this Friday, the sunniest and warmest day of a very grey and rainy week. We had the pleasure of welcoming Arlette and Tyrell, new walkers, whom we hope to see regularly. After the walk we stopped for a nice chat and lovely tea in the cosy atmosphere of the welcoming taverne du Rouge-Cloître.

Paulette's walk in Overijse on 24th January 2020

It was cold today. Everybody was well wrapped up. But a brisk walk kept us warm. Nevertheless, we were all very happy to put our feet up at Paulette's for a coffee and a cookie.
