Autumn walks along the Warche and the lake of Robertville

Previous weekend the temperatures dropped and we forgot our hot vacation just a week before. But fortunately it was nice and sunny weather on Sunday.  Monday was a Belgian holiday for Remembrance day but then the sun was hiding and there was an icy wind.

Nevertheless we profited each day with a nice walk nearby the Warche and Robertville.  The town of Waimes seems to have redesigned several walks and have renewed all the itinerary road signs everywhere.

We were all dressed up warmly against the frost but it turned out to be glorious and warm (well with all the clothes we we wearing).  The sun gave a nice glare to the orange beech leaves. The dam in Butgenbach must have been open as the Warche river was quite swollen. 

puddles to measure the boot depth!

Today we tried for the first time since long the trails along the lake passed the campground and returned via trails through the fields with some cattle gates and bridges for tiny creeks until we were back in the well-known neighbour village.

Thanks to the icy wind, this walk felt longer than it was and in the end we were all counting down to return into the welcoming heated home. But it was surely a nice variation to the known paths to repeat later on.
