Honey Festival- Virelles Lake
On Sunday, while Seyfi was working, again, Alara and I went for a drive outside of Mons to a Honey and Nature festival.
It was held at a nature reserve called Aquascope, which is on a lake in the south of Belgium, about an hour from Mons.
The title of the festival was a bit miss leading, it was not really a festival, and there wasn't much honey (although I did buy a small jar, and a big bottle of the most delicious apple juice), but the nature was beautiful.
The nice thing about this place was that it was really geared to teach children about nature. There were ponds to catch bugs and frogs from, and then microscopes to look at them under. There was information written everywhere about the different birds, trees and insects. There was also a tree top walk.
Alara and I had a lovely time, we will be going back in September when they are having their bird festival, hopefully Seyfi will be joining us too!
