Along the river from Liege

We set off from Liege this morning and crossed the river to pick up the cycle route to Huy. We thought that we were on our way, but the path turned around and after a few kilometres we were almost back to our hotel.
The path had loads of twists and turns through industrial estates and tatty looking housing areas, but it was really good fun. 
We occasionally saw the river and it had numerous power stations and working barges. 

We then left the river for a long hill climb up to Chateau Jehay that was not only closed but also covered in scaffolding and with the moat drained. 

Interesting, but slightly disappointed we free wheeled back down to the river and on our way. 
After Huy the path followed the river all the way to our destination for the night at Namur. The route here was lovely and green and we had a nice but windy run in to this pretty town.
