This weekend we are up in Antwerp to visit Ria’s father and friends. What better reason to spend the night at Biesbosch Nature Reserve and see some of the migratory birds on their way to better weather for the winter

Wow just keep trying
We had the entire group from Ria‘s Peru trip come over to East Belgium for some hiking this weekend.
Yesterday they went into Germany around Bleialf, today we went into the Fenn. It snowed all day but the nature was still so beautiful and where we hiked was virgin snow. Fantastic to break through fresh snow that sometimes comes up to your knees,but pretty hard work especially as the ground underneath was nor frozen but boggy. Still it was a great weekend and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
Having damaged my Achilles heel running for a plane I didn’t catch, thanks to AA [no, neither Alcoholics Anonymous nor the Automobile Association but American Airlines] I was looking for another sport to replace cycling and hiking while my heel mends. Cut a long story short: skateboarding!
We had a beautiful night sky tonight, nearly full moon and thin scattered clouds turned the sky into something out of a sci-fi movie.
Because Ria is taking the ‘Zone C’ exam to be allowed to lead select groups through the forbidden C zone on the High Fenn, we got the chance to go with her into the Fagne de Cléfaye. The duckboards are rotten, but the nature is completely unspoilt. A very interesting little walk
