First snow


We drove to the Ardennes yesterday and arrived in the east of Belgium in a winter wonder land.   It was already snowing around 300m high, much sooner than I had anticipated.  And although it wasn't truly freezing yet, so some of the white stuff was melting, ...there was so much falling all day that all was covered in a good 5 cm of snow everywhere. 

Gorgeous, just gorgeous.... none of the pictures do any justice to the beauty of the landscapes!
But here's a selection of our afternoon walk anyhow.   Oh....and do try to spot the residential town swan in the 3rd picture: it really is there in the field!! :)
