Friday Photo (on a Sunday)

Todays Friday Photo comes from Lucerne (Luzern), Switzerland.

We spent a day in Lucerne about 20 years ago, and liked it so much that we had to go back. That, and it was an easy jumping-off place to head up Mount Titlis.

Switzerland is expensive.  Food is expensive.  Hotels are expensive.  And the old town part of Lucerne is simply stunning.  Each Saturday, two markets appear – a food market on one side of the river, and the bric-a-brac (aka junk) market on the other.

We were staying right on the waterfront – alongside the river, so the food market appeared overnight, right outside our window.  Everything appears very quietly – it wasn’t until the Saturday morning that I opened up the window and found bustling market outside!

It was fascinating walking along the side of the river,  looking at what is on sale, and looking at the people.

So today’s Friday Photo is the horse dog at the riverside cafe. Flick back and forward through some of the other photos so see more of Lucerne.  I’m still adding these, one per day, so all of Lucerne will be there in about another week.

It’s my next dog, I swear . .it’s a Burmese Mountain Dog awesome with those gorgeous tri-colour cartoonish features. There’s one at the local grower’s market I go to and he’s just booooofuls. Seriously,reduces Labrador loving me to baby blither. I loved Lucerne but missed the markets. The Swiss Guard monument (dying lion) is just beautiful.

The goggie is gorgeous – but you do know that the curly pumpkins featured in another one of your photos would most definitely be banned by Tea Tree Gully council, don’t you?!
