River Walk

This morning I left Darrell happily getting ready for the upcoming INQUA (International Quaternary Association) meeting which begins tomorrow.

I went to meet Katherine, his hard-working lab manager, at the train station as she arrived for the meeting.  We immediately went out for coffee - who knows what time zone Katherine is on!  But she wanted to stay awake long enough to go for a walk along the river.

After she got settled, we began strolling along the River Aare.  We took one of the many bridges towards the north and then walked along the path you see on the left side of the river below.

While I have seen a few kayakers, this was my first time seeing a wave runner.  The line was attached to a tree far upstream and then she played on waves formed by the current.  It looked like fun!

The trail then went by the nicest looking auto-repair shop I have ever seen.  Pretty much everything here is about as darn attractive as you can imagine!

We rounded the bend and started heading back towards Katherine's place - but not before seeing this wonderful place built right into the river!  Notice the gardens on top.

Okay, that's all for tonight.  This little cowgirl is riding off into the sunset!
