Bomal sur Ourthe

The outdoor life on a camping site includes walking, a lot of it. One day I walked 20 minutes from Barvaux sur Ourthe to Bomal sur Ourthe. Both villages are located along the Ourthe river bank. These are the pics I shot that day. Every Sunday from 8 am – 1 pm there is a fresh market called La Petite Batte in Bomal sur Ourthe. The market was busy with vendors selling their goodies, fruits, vegetables, bread and bric à brac. There were many tourists beside the locals as well, I managed to spot and shot these.

Fresh herbs in a pot, rosemary, parsley, thyme, dille, mint etc.

These are wild asparagus from the woods. I have never seen them before. Beautiful right? From half of April until the end of Mei there is Asparagus season in West – Europe.

This castle (Château de Bomal), built in 1776, is a private property with no access for public. However the castle park around it is worth a visit. Renovation of the park was completed in 2012. It is quite new.

It is idyllic and soothing to see all the greens present.
