Birthday breakfast


Ferry arriving Raperswil

Arriving at Ufenau Island

Walking around island

Lunch area

25 July 2018

We allowed ourselves a sleepin after a late night, and at 8am, Regi, Trudie and Marcel appeared at our bedroom window singing "Happy birthday."

Down into the garden under the walnut tree for breakfast at 9am!! What a birthday!!

All into the car mid morning for a drive to Raperswil to catch the ferry to Ufenau Island in the middle of the lake for lunch. Switzerland is experiencing a one in 100 year summer, so we found it very hot there compared to the cool air up in the Alps. Didn't bother us, as "hot" here was 34d.

We enjoyed a walk around part of the island before settling in for a long lunch under the huge trees. More chatting, chatting.

Lovely to chat to Ian and Nicola while we were lunching, a nice surprise!

Caught the ferry back to Raperswil, a stroll through the old town shops, a stop for an ice cream before heading back home. A restful afternoon lazing around soaking up the quiet of this amazing spot, and looking out over the lake way below us.

After dinner we went for a walk around this area before settling down for some more cards.

Lots of laughs and great company.

Thank you everyone for a lovely day!
