Udderly fantastic

The school holidays started last week and I've spent the past few days enjoying the Swiss mountain charm of a town called Lenzerheide, superb!
At the top of the first lift I discovered an outdoor bar which was offering a shot of something a little bit stronger in your coffee, not a wise move especially for the likes of myself who has enough trouble staying upright in the first place. I happily sat on a woolly lined deckchair watching the world go by.
And down through the valley they came, loads of them, skiers and snowboarders, whizzing at break neck speed, and you know what?? NONE of them fell over!! not a single one!! (and I was sitting, I mean resting there for quite some time...)
We're home but I want to go back! I loved everything about this place, sigh...

Oh, gosh. What a wonderful place! Wish I could have been sitting there with you. I live near two big sky resorts and I am such a chicken to go skiing anymore (bad knee) but I love spending time on the mountain! Jamie V in (snowy) Montana

Love that last picture! My boys are going skiing for Spring Break next month. I've opted out, as I too don't stay upright very well.

I would be keeping you company on an ajoining chair and slurping down hot, laced coffee! :) Leave the standing upright to the others!
