Burgenstock – 6

A perennial favorite of mine: like a verdant, benevolent Hydra – one tree falls and a hundred plants arise to take its place.

Burgenstock – 1

Our short walk from the landing area to the Verbena restaurant went along this lovely vista. Green meadows all in flower leading to far-off alpine peaks and the sound of cow-bells tinkling floating up the slopes… Think the cows are an exaggeration? Take a gander ๐Ÿ˜› Another, almost aerial view…such serenity! One can almost feel … Continue reading

Luzern – 3

The weather was ideal for a boat-trip; the sun was shining, the breeze was cool, there were a few clouds scudding by, the water was pristine…it was truly one of those days that make you glad for being alive. ๐Ÿ™‚ I tried to straighten … Continue reading
