Surfing fours…

Arriving at Torquay Beach last November, 2016.

Waves not as big as I thought they would be…

but plenty of surfers out and about…

Lucerne-2

 
In Lucerne again this week and more

of a ride than a walk.

After we visited the Lucerne Lion…

(More about the Lucerne Lion, here)

we were back on our coach for a short drive

to a rail line to take us to the top of Mt Rigi.

Mt Rigi is 1798 metres above sea level,

a bit shorter than Australia’s highest mountain,

Mt Kosciuszko which stands 2,228 metres.

However, I have never been to the top

of Mt Kosciuszko.

We drove past architecture not seen Down Under…

until we were finally on our train ride up Mt Rigi.

I thought I had my camera level but

this shot says otherwise, I think.

 

The ride seemed so step and the dairy cows also

seemed to have two short legs enabling them

to stand level on this steep terrain.

Finally we arrived at the end of  our journey.

The final 200 or so metres was by

the not so reliable (these days)

Shanks’ Pony.

However I did make it to the top.

Images to follow next week.
