This week young Andrew and I are having a Staycation and plan to be near water most days. Yesterday we headed down to the lovely Lac de la Gruyère which makes up for in rugged authenticity what it lacks in tourist amenities! As I write this post on the train, my legs feel nicely tired, my cheeks still feel warm from the sun and, better still, I get to go home and sleep in my own bed. You can’t say fairer than that, hey?
Corona masks we had to wear
Upon the train to Lake Gruyère
The sun showed up with kindly rays
and soon our hike was underway
Some forest turns, around the lake
A rural zone – make no mistake
Where natural tones and wild prevailed
We looked for snacks – to no avail!
and as we reached the midway point
My hangry nose put out of joint
we trekked up hill, we trekked down dale
The untrained Andrew’s face quite pale!
I needed snacks – he was quite patient
and soon we reached the strange bus station
Procuring me a salad bowl
Whilst Burger King was Android’s goal
These hiking days we love to share
Well worth a trip to Lake Gruyère
