It’s the end of the Halloween. The kids are back in school on Monday after a week away from purgatory. It’s also the week we would most often visit Switzerland. It’s quiet. Attractions like Lake Boats and Cable Cars are still operating full summer timetables. Winter hasn’t kicked in but snow has returned to the mountains. The colours are glorious and the skies are frequently so atmospheric. As ever photos don’t do it justice but here goes.

  1. I have looked at this post waaaay too long! I absolutely love it (and all others with majestic mountain pics). I am a mountains, lakes, forest kind of girl, so these just speak to me! Thank you for the amazing pics you share! 🙂 Hope you have a lovely Sunday!

  2. Love the pictures, especially the one of the moon (and the dinosaur climbing on/over it) 🙂

    I expect the memories of half-term will help survive the next few weeks of purgatory, hopefully until Christmas.. (like your memories of Switzerland help you)

  3. Today, I have some worries nettling me. The next four weeks will be anxious ones and honestly, I didn’t skip as happily to your post.

    Idly scrolling through your pics, I came to No. 7 and decided that was my favourite and for a few wistful seconds, I imagined having a home with a gurgling brooke ribboning down the front and white-breasted mountains gazing benevolently over the home. More than anything, Switzerland represents new life and hope for me. But today, hope felt a little distant.

    Then, I reached the last one and that rainbow reached out and caught my heart. Since last year, and especially in recent weeks, God has made the rainbow His special reminder to me that all will be well soon. What a beautiful feeling it gave me to see your rainbow on a day when I needed it.

    God bless you and your boy.

  4. Viewing your S.S. posts are like taking a holiday from life for an all too brief while!

    I hope they bring you as much joy and relief as they give to us.

    As a photographer with an interest i am a little doubtful of that moon photo…

    … but it is a full moon and, at the horizon, they can sometimes seem larger than life!

    Still, that’s one heck of a big mountain? 😉

  6. Thank you so much for clicking on JanBeek and leaving your “calling card” so I could find you. Did you find me through our mutual friend, Derrick? Did he tell you I have a daughter and son-in-law and three grandsons in Switzerland? You can imagine my surprise when I clicked on your site and found these gorgeous Swiss photographs. Ah yes, so familiar! Is that Lake Geneva (Lac Lemon?)?? Our DeDe is in Valais (Sierre) and we have flown into Geneva every other year since she moved there from CA with Andre’ 28 years ago. Your post made me very nostalgic! I am so sorry your son is having such a difficult time finding a place where his needs are met in school. As a retired educator, my heart breaks when I hear of such tragedies. And my heart goes out to you as a single parent. I cannot imagine what it would have been like to try and raise our two kids by myself. Kudos to you! Hang in there. You keep on being your son’s best advocate! Hugs to you ❤
