Switzerland is gorgeous!

Hi All,

I have been missing from the blog world for a year!! So how about a post about a recent vacation that started in Lucerne, Switzerland. Talk about a beautiful country….rivers, mountains, and also wonderful food and people!!

We spent 3 nights in Lucerne and traveled to 2 different mountain areas. The city itself is busy but quaint in its own way, and the mountains are amazing. I have some pics to share, but they will never show you the beauty that we saw! Incredible!

ferry ride back on Lake Lucerne

That's where we were...the mountains in the background!!

 

It was an amazing 3 days before we began our Rhine River Cruise…more on that later, but I will tell you this was my favorite part of the whole trip!!

Perhaps now I can try to post a bit more…not only about my trip, but also about my beautiful granddaughters, and about all those things I am so grateful for!!

Stay tuned!!

Happy Parenting,

D and C
