Marcus and Agata have already expounded the virtues of Daily Exercise but well sometimes you need a day off from our regular rather gruelling schedule.
So this last Saturday we thought a gentle stroll might be the best course of action and we thought about somewhere new
The Menhir Monolith at Essertes Auboranges
In 2013 whilst participating in the 38Km General Guisan walk we had a charming [wine!] refreshment stop in Auboranges district. They told us that close by was the
/largest monolith in all of Switzerland/
So Saturday we thought we had best check it out. It's sort of on our local bucket list of Swiss activities because we don't know how much longer we will be living in canton Vaud or even Switzerland for that matter.
[NB: donations always welcome, we would love to stay :-( ]
Here are photographs of the day.
I suppose it is evidence that
a) We had a nice time walking and talking
b) Nothing really happened, but the sights and sounds were just beautiful to us
c) We really appreciate Switzerland!
We parked in Esserts. Hurry up husband, Agata is saying
We thought if we could buy this fire station cheaply and take it over it would be perfect to house a Motorhome should we ever get one (tall garage).
Quaint and beautiful views after only a few hundred metres.
We are speechless. Somebody has a wonderful double garage including a custom motorhome bay. We Like.
Nice blooms in the summer we think
Zoom in for the Amen
Some cute tiny animal breeding farm
Complete with kitties
Strange rustic torture machine
The monolith sign has been found
This is the smallest /largest monolith in the whole of Switzerland/ that Marcus can imagine
What do you think? It is not that big is it?
Next to this property is some land we think we'd love to build our dream house on.
Lots of wonderfully quaint houses
And more kitties. This truly is a wonderful area.
So we made the walk, we talked the talk and had a splendidly relaxing time. Only tale of the monolith given to us was tall :-)
