2018 – Piet de Bie Memorial Walk

Please note the start time is 11:00 and also the updated lunch arrangements.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?

I think not! So do plan on joining us for the 2nd Annual Piet De Bie Walk which, like last year, will take place on Piet’s birthday.

The date for the walk is Thursday February 8, 2018. We will meet at the church in Vendays-Montalivet (there is parking on both sides of the church).

Our meeting time has been moved up to 11:00 am to give people time to say hello and to change into their walking regalia.

This walk should be about 5-6 km long. Our route will take us by the park bench where last year we scattered some of Piet’s ashes. The walk is mostly on paved road, grassy track, and a short sandy wooded stretch.

Afterwards, we will drive over to Montalivet for lunch at « LeMarin » restaurant. When I have numbers, I’ll send around the menu choices for our fixed menu lunch. The price will be 18€ with coffee. All walkers are welcome, even those who didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Piet.

What is important is the legacy he left us, of getting us together, of getting some fresh air, of enjoying the outdoors in every season.

In the meantime, book online and save the date on your calendars so that together we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne.
