Saturday, we found ourselves in Interlaken. It was a sunny Spring like day filled with the beauty of the Alps.
Below, is a photo of a wooden bear holding an edelweiss flower.
Do you see the cow sticking out of the corner of the building?
Interlaken was busy with people out and about. The traditional Alpine buildings were beautiful.

Train passing by.
These houses have the most incredible view of the lake and the Alps.
Some of the houses have a “garage” for boats right underneath.
We had to cross an overpass to get to the other side of the lake. The train tracks are on this overpass as well. My hearth thudded in my chest to be so close to a fast moving train.
Here is the back of the train after it passed by.

The path we walked on. We had to constantly watch the children because over that stone wall was a drop down to the train tracks. There was a father who put his son up on the stone wall to walk. The father did keep hold of his son’s hand but I still think it was dangerous.
The water of the lake was the deepest turquoise in color.
There were bright purple flowers spilling out of yards onto stone walls like out of a storybook.
I love these wood piles nestled into yards or along a road. I am amazed no one steals all that wood.
Typical Alpine home.
