impromptu lausanne

You know how you can spend a lot of money on an expensive toy for a child only to discover that they’re just as content (more content, even) banging on the pots and pans in the kitchen than they are playing with their overpriced toy?

Well, that’s sort of what happened today. We had all kinds of things planned on our agenda but a hiccup here and a weather glitch there and the day didn’t exactly come together as planned. And I loved it! Some of the most memorable things happen this way.

Today’s highlights:

We stopped to say hello to some local cows. We fed them handfuls of grass and they seemed quite taken with our group. Some of the cows seemed to love some of us more than others. Here, Johnny Jet gets one big, sloppy Swiss kiss!

We also stumbled upon a cafe (which felt much more like we’d walked straight into a local woman’s home) and enjoyed her freshly-baked apple tart. The apples were still warm as they oozed out of the flaky pastry. You just can’t plan this stuff!

And this … well, I just like this picture, taken as we walked down to the lake to take a solar boat ride on Lake Geneva. I made a wish but I can’t tell you what it was.
