Juast some random shots taken while strolling through the village of Morges on the shore of Lac Lemans (Lake Geneva).
Dogs are welcome at the restaurants and even cater for.
Anybody for garlic?
A small water feature.
Front view of the main cathedral.
Just a wierdo with his bike. This guy excelled in talking to himself in a somewhat loud voice.
The yacht basin.
That is it for now. Changed to winter time last night so not being used to that system I am timewise a little confused. Enjoy a super Sunday.
One can feel winter approaching with a purpose, but let me take you on the last walk through the market of Morges.
Anyone for cheese, real Swiss cheese?
Broiled chickens for sale.
Another variety of cheeses on sale, after all it is Switzerland.
A nuts and olives stand.
Bread baked in a wood fired oven. We intended buying one on our way back, but lost out the breads were all sold.
Without some musicians no market of this nature is complete.
That then concludes the stroll through the Saturday street market of Morges. Entering our final weekend here before heading home on Wednesday. Have a super day.
Some more shots taken at the Morges market.
Breads, jams and cheese.
A selection of saucisse .
Cheese, delicious cured meat and saucisse to choose from.
Dresses, dresses and dresses.
On our way home we saw the true sign that winter is here. I think our luck will hold and we will enjoy comfortable to cold days until we return home on Wednesday before winter truly sets in, especially baring in mind our warmest cloths are suited for the Cape Town autumn climate.
First snow on the Jura mountains some fifteen kilometers away.
Friday again and wishing all a pleasant weekend.
Wednesdays and Saturdays are the market days in the main street of Morges. Saturday past, while still in a very nice and comfortable autumn day, we went to the market and I would like to take you along for a stroll amongst the stalls.
The cathedral at the eastern end of the main street.
A large variety of pickled products on sale.
Vegetables, vegetables and vegetables.
A large variety of tasty mushrooms to choose from.
More to follow.
Within twenty four hours the weather changed from autumn to winter bringing a drastic drop in temperatures and the snow fall on the Jura mountains. Due to cloud the Alps to the east are not visible but I am sure, being much higher that the Jura the snow fall there will by much more than on the Jura.
Survived the cold I picked up along the way only to be hit by contracting conjunctivitis so a visit to the doctor yesterday lent some extra colour to the holiday.
Entering D Day minus 6 I wish all a blessed day.
Daybreak over Lausanne and the Alps.
Later in the day all under cloud cover.
Sunset seen over the Jura in the west when day was done.
Not only midweek again but for us D Day minus 7 before our return home.
Have a super day.
Pics of the Iffigenfall fall near Lenk.
And so the fickle finger of fate arranged for me to get that horror called a cold while on holiday, but survival is the name of the game. Have a great day.
A few pics of the mountains surrounding Lenk.
The Ammertenhorn and its glacier.
Lenk 800 meters below Bühlberg
The Plaine Morte glacier on the summit left hand side.
Enjoy the new week.
Pics of some chalets in Lenk
And where we stayed, bottom left with the bright deck chairs.
Have super day of rest.
Here a few pics of the scenic road to Lenk. These pics were all taken from a moving car so there was no time for correct composure.
Two of the tunnels we went through and I must admit the Swiss know how to build roads through the mountains.
A chalet on the way.
View down a misty valley.
We were under the impressions the farmers have already brought all the cattle down from the mountains, but we had our surprise.
Notice the youngster helping in herding the cows. The example set is that in Switzerland the whole able bodied family members share in the responsibilities of running the farm.
Anyway we got to Lenk without too much of a delay albeit that cows enjoy priority on the roads.
