Just so you can see what I can see....

As promised, a few photos. I downloaded them onto my hard drive, and so help me, it will not allow me to turn them, so 95% are excluded from the selection process. As there are over 500, you may well be relieved. Above you can see part of the village. The big white building is the Benedictine Monastery and school.

One of our favourite views of the valley and village. Diana loves this view. Jean had never been down this part before and loved it too.

A Swiss cow viewing the world from a lofty perch.....

What can I say. So beautiful.

It is even better in real life.


Along the river here in the valley, there is a bridge where people have built towers of stone. Great, isn't it? David and Jean also built towers this time.

Swiss National Day, and all the flags were flying. Everywhere. Why don't we have a British National Day?
And how is this for a final photo today?

There will be more.

Just beautiful. We have similar beauty in Colorado, but no cows looking over the cliff!

As always, these photos of your visits there make me gasp in wonder. It's hard to believe there really is such a place.

Linds, it is beautiful beyond imagination! It hardly looks real. Thank you so much. I always look forward to these pictures.

Wow, you are in paradise there. So different than living here at the coast. Waiting for more pictures and these are just beautiful:)

Love and Hugs, Laurie

It's so gorgeous!! I knew it was beautiful but this is even better than I thought. Your last photo could be a calendar page :) I wish I was there with you - so enjoy for me too, please! You will love the Rocky Mountains when you come here but there aren't any picturesque villages. And you'll see elk, deer and moose instead of cows :) Keep the pictures coming, please!

Forget walking, I will crawl over there, and swim the ocean.

Hope there is a spare bed, I will be there in say, 2 years.

On my way :)

Thank you for sharing such exquisite photos. They are truly breathtaking and I can NOT imagine what it is like to be there in person in the midst of such beauty.
