A ride on the old "Heber Creeper" railroad!
There were plenty of train cars to choose from; we settled into the last car with lots of room to spread out.
(and no, the train could not be stopped for me to get a close up shot.)
Of course no bit of lollygagging lasts long.
Gun fire was heard from the first car, and soon train robbers burst into our midst, demanding where we had hid the treasure box.
We had a tense few moments there....but soon they moved on, and all was well again.
(The train company also offers a murder mystery theater train ride, I think this train robbery was a ploy to keep the actors busy the rest of the time!!)
ers" were always willing to give us a friendly wave as we passed. I told Bernie I want to go tubing really soon. Rafting didn't look half as fun, and with a tube, Bernie could fish as he floated along.
fluffy clouds: Did the sailor realize what a scenic picture their boats help create?
Take a moment to really study this picture and try to imagine how it would fit into a home decorating article.
And how anyone ever grew up to want to make a Sh*t kicking CLOCK of all things!
pastry piece to share later. Another photo op presented itself...
staff stepped up and offered to take a picture of the four of us together.
Wish you could have seen the staff dressed in traditional Swiss costume...
Those are the sort of roads that have the best wildflowers you know...
We returned home to enjoy more time on the deck, giving the pushy blue jays peanuts, resting up a bit, and then moseying over to the neighborhood pizza buffet. It was what Hal wanted; it wasn't until the next day that we realized we hadn't yet eaten the birthday pastry!
To be continued....
