In Peruwelz…

we found ourselves still within the region encompassed by the Eurometropolis Blue Park and the both of us were loving it.

After a day of rain, the weather at last cleared enough, off to Peruwelz went we: our destination L’Escale Forestiere  – or in English ‘Scheldt Plain Nature Park House’.

This was another of those experiences that encompasses all ages. Good fun for the children,

a heap of information

and some great walks – or from what we could see (just a pity Bob can’t do it). There was a short tree forest meander that in spring or autumn would look absolutely stunning.

For the walkers, the Scarpe Escaut information page looks pretty good.


That evening, the local geese kept us well entertained…
