What better way to rest from two weeks in two of the biggest, most beautiful and bustling cities in the world?
Why ascend a small mountain of course.
Ok, we didn't actually climb it ourselves.
We had a bit of help with a cable car.
Lunch at the top with a fabulous view.
We decided to walk down under our own steam,
even though we were told by about five people that we couldn't go in THOSE SHOES!!
But the path was in good condition (like everything in Switzerland).
And there were plenty of rest stops.
And within 30 minutes we made in one piece - still sporting our cute natty sandals.
We looked for our unbelievers but they had disappeared.
Next, a drive to a calm lake for ice cream and a dip of the toes in the water.
There were plenty of swans of course.
Daughter tried to make friends with one.
But he was more interested in her toes.
To escape the toe eating swan we walked on.
And discovered - well - I'm really not sure.
A monument to the Knitters Guild of Thalwil maybe?
