What we did today- Bon Secours
This morning we got a phone call from our new friends here in Belgium, asking us if we would like to go for a nature walk in Bon Secours today. Since it was the first day in almost a week without rain, we jumped at the chance
Bon Secours is a little town about 25 minutes from Mons, it has a large basilica and wonderful walking trails.
When we got to Bon Secours the first thing we did was get our tickets to the tree top walk. I really enjoyed the walk, and so did Alara. We were on top of the trees, walking along, looking at the birds and the beautiful view of the tes all around.
When we got down from the tree tops, we started the three kilometer nature walk. It was an absolutley beautiful. The trees were beautifuli the path was clear, the birds were singing and we ate out weight in beautiful blackberries. The girls had a wonderful time running along, jumping off logs and picking up acorns.
The only thing is that when we came to the last turn on the path, we went the wrong way and ended up in FRANCE! How do I always end up in a different country! Luckily we found the road back and walked into the town, had a nice lunch and then ended up finding the car again.
On the way back to the car, we did stop in and look at the basillica. The basillica is located right in the middle of the town looking down on the main street. It is a beautiful old church with wonderful stain glass windows.
It was a wonderful day, with good friends and wonderful weather. It was what we needed after all the rain!
