April Walk – 2019

Spring was definitely in the air for our April walk around Orval sur Sienne. Already cheered by the blue sky, sun, and a gentle breeze, the group set off. We were accompanied by one canine friend, already a veteran of our walks, and two new members who brought their dog along.

The time went by quickly, people chatting as they walked; new conversations starting as people changed groupings. There were some more challenging parts where muscles were certainly exercised, but this was worth it for the views we enjoyed.

At one point, some young bulls took a great interest in one of the dogs. Indeed they all followed us right to the end of their field, where we left them, still curious.


Well, a long walk deserves a reward…. Lunch was taken at à La Sienne. This restaurant has been used before and again, it did not disappoint. The cheerful lady who served us was welcoming and efficient. We had been asked to arrive for 1.30 so most of the regular customers had finished. I did wonder if this would mean that some menu choices would not be available. However, there was no need to worry. Everything on the board was still on offer and was very tasty. A very good value lunch at 12€ for 3 courses.
Thank you Louise and Dave, for the well organized walk and for re visiting our lunch venue. Looking forward to the next one!
