I would really struggle to find any bikini-clad

sun lovers in Victoria this time of year.

However, I as in Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne

I’m sure there would be plenty

soaking up the sun as this group did.

Here Comes the Bride…

Busy Manly beach

a long walk or walking tour.

After a comfortable train ride up Mt Rigi

we had to hike up a short but steep path

to reach the summit.

 

I thought the walk back down

to the souvenir shop was equally,

if not, more arduous than the going up.

relating to water

Prior to our visit to Lucerne, I had never thought…

…of Switzerland as having an…

…aquatic recreational industry.

I was so wrong.

 

Geelong’s Corio Bay…

…is another story…

A glimpse of the Bay from anywhere…

 

…and you will see signs of aquatic recreation…

…and that is before you are anywhere near the Marina.

After a train ride most of the way

up Lucerne’s Mt. Rigi…

 

…there was still a steep ascent/descent

to attain its summit and return.

In my pre-teen years,

a fireman I never wanted to be,

I wanted to be an archeologist.

So when  Pompeii was on our itinerary,

it would have taken a deluge

akin to the one that hit New York this week…

…to stop me from walking around the Pompeii ruins.

 

I think imminent wet weather may have

curtailed our guided tour

However, the worst of the rain held off

until we completed our inspection.
