were enjoying the sun on
the shores of Lake Lucerne
a few days earlier.
On this chilly Victorian winter Sunday
to a sunny September day, in 2016, on…
and around Lake Lucerne.
A few days later we were strolling along
Nice’s Promenade des Anglais…
where many were enjoying
a lazy day in the sun.

Tuesday Photo Challenge
drives many people to our beaches
during the summer months.
These sun lovers on and along Lake Lucerne had
shed their day wear for beach attire on a day
which most of us thought was pleasant but not hot.
However, I’m sure there a plenty who would
have a chuckle at me saying a day
was chilly, temperature under 20 degrees Celsius,
and cold under 10 degrees.
All a matter of perspective.
My contribution for this week’s challenge…
we had to…
ascend the Spiral Staircase in the Vatican.
In Lucerne we ascended Mt Rigi…
I thought the train was taking us to the top.
However, we had to ascend/walk this path before…
This was taken about half way up/down.
The rail journey ended at that building on the left.
we were able to take in the beautiful views…
from the top of Mt Rigi.
at the top, I had a brief meeting with my knees.
They declined the offer to ascend
this viewing platform citing the return journey
was going to be more precarious
than walking up to the top.
As always they were correct!
Switzerland could only be described as
were of Soxie who passed away
about twelve months ago.
However, I could have easily gone
down this track also.
However, as he was sleeping with
one eye open, literally,
I was pleased that there was
a very thick slab of glass between us.
as possibly the first McDonalds, or takeaway, ever.
Food was prepared and served to the public.
