I really enjoy our visits to Bern. We visited this quiet but not sleepy city once again on Saturday. We set out to discover new corners of the capital of Switzerland that we haven’t explored before.
Today, I would like to share some of the nature photos that I took. Bern like many Swiss cities is at harmony with nature. The capital is surrounded by forests and fields with a view of the Alps.

Walking with nature near a river.
Gray steel contrasting against the blue and green of nature.
The river was a deep blue-green and ran with a strength that I stopped to drawl from.
My mind drifted away from the worries that I carry in my heart. For a moment all was at peace and the sound of my children laughing danced along the ripples.
My girls went to school together today. It is the first time that they will be in the classroom at the same time. They were excited and talked about all the things they were going to share. It was a happy morning filled with the plans of two sisters and the loneness of one little brother left behind. He forget his loss as he played in the bathroom sink and I let him.
We have had it with the children in our neighborhood and are going to move as soon as possible. The kids are bullies and one little girl took it too far on Friday by pulling my five year old around by the hair. I will never forget the sound of my daughter’s shrills of fear and pain. She was so upset because she had never been exposed to such violence. She didn’t understand that other children were so cruel.
It is breaking my heart.
