A Wonderful Waterfall Walk

As I mentioned in my post “A Roadtrip to Start the Season” we have parked our caravan here in “Pontresina” (1815 metres above sea level) and are now spending the kids summer holidays up here. Today we decided to walk to a waterfall on the opposite side of the lake. I’ve seen the waterfall on my morning dog strolls and couldn’t wait to go exploring… Our Sunny, couldn’t resist the lake and someone else enjoyed the simple pleasure of a dandelion… … even with a couple of distractions on the way, we reached our destination in about 45 minutes. In no time at all the kids were busy stacking stones like the ones that were scattered around the base of the waterfall. (I’m sure my blogging buddy Mike will like them, check his post). They were so busy, that they completely forgot about the time and I had to drag them away with the promise, that we’d go back another day.

Cosy Campfire

Autumn is on our doorstep, the gras and trees are turning to a dull shade of green and the flowers are fading. So making the most of the dry weather, we headed off to the woods for a walk. We collected pinecones and dry branches to make a campfire… …the kids absolutely loved it and after a run around the woods, what better way to recharge those batteries than with a campfire cooked sausage! …On her best behavior… (or maybe it was a pose to pounce on anything that hit the floor), but fortunatly our youngest took pity on her a gave her a bit of hers.
