R
Note from Dad This was a warm day at around 25 , humid , 8 miles aprox .

Start of the Church at Margaret 6600 Bastogne,

small commemorative plaque

most of the roads are called Margaret , so they put a sign up telling where to find the house numbers

off we go !

can you see the flock of birds – they were very noisy !

the electricity line was full of the birds !

we passed a lot of cows !

Evie and me have sun cream on already

Leo also has sun cream on but he does not like it being put on ,

Evie in the woods – this is peace woods

there is lots of woods around here,

a sign telling you about a path !

can you see the wind turbine?

we found a old trailer on the railway

This the railway line looking towards the memorial for 101st airborne divsion

an old bridge – I spent time here while we were having a picnic looking at lizards they were too fast to photograph, they were black in colour

look what hopped onto Leo’s push chair

a green grasshopper

Evie held it too !


he 4,000 trees making up this wood were planted for the 50t

the beetle is still on me !

some of the trees that make up the woods

a rest – this was a long way – we now have just done 6 miles ,

we are running about – still
