In and around Les Emibois

We took a good walk this past Saturday. I still would have liked to have walked more but it was looking like a storm was blowing in and we headed home by train.

We were right and it rained hard right after we boarded the train but it stopped right before our stop. Inside our apartment I complained that we should have stuck it out. Then, it really started to pour.

Good thing we headed home when we did!

Here are the shots I got from our walk in and around Les Emibois which is part of the municipality of Muraux.

We have walked here often and I always think it is beautiful.

In this photo you can see the storm clouds starting to gather but we were still hoping they would blow over.

This dog looks innocent in this photo but let me tell you he was one yappy dog.

Now, this is the life…for a cow. Aren’t the flowers incredible? I like how you can see them sticking up in front of the cow.

Why hello pretty girl. I got to pet this horse a long time before Vilay yelled at me to get moving. You can see how gentle she was by looking in her eyes.

Here is the baby of the horse shown above. I love this photo because of the curve of the horses neck, the yellow flowers and the bird flying in the back.

I think this horse is just beautiful.

The view from the train stop where we were waiting on the train. It did rain a little during our wait but we had a small shelter to wait under and enjoyed the sound and smell of the rain with this view.

I thought it would be interesting for everyone to see a photo of the machine to buy train tickets.

The cat sat there cleaning herself until it started to rain. She did stop to watch my two overly excited girls a few times to be sure they weren’t coming after her. ;)

You can see more photos in my Walking the Jura set on flickr by clicking here. It is starting to get pretty big after a year here in Switzerland.

We celebrated our first year in Switzerland at the end of May. I can’t believe we have been here that long! Only four more years until we can ask for a Permit C (we have a Permit B and a C is the next step up) and only eleven more years until we can ask for Swiss citizenship! ;)

    I absolutely adore your photos. The last one is so superb! It makes me so homesick. I want to go back and live in Switzerland!

    lapagefrancaise,
    Thank you. The wild flowers are everywhere and it makes me happy to walk and discover new flowers every week.

    expatraveler,
    Thank you. If you want I will be happy to send you post cards each time we go somewhere new. Then, you can hold a piece of Switzerland in your hands. :)
