Fafleralp And Beyond

The end of the Lotschental Pass...
It was such a hot day, so we sensibly waited until late afternoon to get out walking.


We had gone as far as we could in the car & we really wanted to see if we reach the snow.

The last sign of civilization, so we thought...


These troughs are dotted all around the mountains - the water tastes really good & is ice cold!

Sime likes the yellow signs...

White rapids!

Looking back towards the opposite end of the pass.

There was a choice of paths - we chose to get into the woodland for some shade.

Out the other side of the woods...


We found out later that it had been over 30 degrees again, no wonder we were feeling hot...
So much so that we abandoned the idea of trying to reach the snow.


Instead we dipped our feet into this freezing lake & enjoyed the view...


And spotted this building, which we discovered is Anenhuette - an ugly, but eco-friendly hostel.
We intended on returning to visit it, but ran out of time - so we definitely have to go back!

We only saw 2 other folks walking... Wonderful!

Heading back... Can you see the waterfall?

A fabulous day!

Top Of The World

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
