It’s harder than it looks honestly! Cookie was an awesome navigator today as a bounced from shore to shore missing shore fishing lines by inches! But we made it back to camp all crew in tact.

A casual row across the lake.

Cookie and I smuggled some of last night’s bacon out on the boat along with a survival tin fishing kit ( from when Cookie and Knotty went on a special Poke trip ).

The water was beautiful. Absolutely clear and turquoise glacier melt. Surprisingly not too freezing to the touch.

I rowed us out, and most of the way in, while dangling my bacony goodness off the back. No biters sadly. But the Blue Pearl did Captain Cook and I well for some welcome sunbathing.

Shame tho. I was looking forward to the fish fry up on a beach campfire. Oh yes.

A bunch of dried fox skins were hanging up under the roof of the cafe with the post cards. They were super soft to touch. Poor fellas.

Marmot poster spotted at the first beer stop on the way down to the lake. The little fellas are about the size of a large cat, and look pretty cute, but I notice usually seem to be dipicted in comedy giant size :)

Yesterday, battered and bruised we made it over the evil black rock pass. And down to the Oeschinensee Lake. I am absolutely shattered! Beers and sleeps in order. Beautiful blue water here. I can spot some rowing boats. Maybe we’ll get to try out our survival-tin fishing kit!

Swiss money is wicked. It works from far away and close up. So many gorgeous details. Extremely well designed family of notes and beautiful too. I almost don’t want to spend them.
ps. Sorry for crap shot! All these posts are from my iPhone. Works well in good light. But sometimes not so awesome…

Beautiful river. I’d have fancied a swim if it wasn’t for the strength of the water. Amazingly powerful. Bloody freezing too I imagine!

Lots more exciting stories including “Cookie and Nicky almost get struck by lightening” over at Cookie’s blog Made In England ! ( I’ve been concentrating on staying alive – Cookie’s been merrily taking photos ;) )

It was a lot bigger and brighter than it looks here. The ice was a real strong blue colour which I was surprised at. Almost looked like it was made from that blue foam we used to use for 3D modelling in CDT class at school. Lots of melt water streaming off…

Evil pass. It wasn’t a very relaxing environment! Dracula would think twice about popping his castle up here I’m sure. His minions would have a tough time luring the victims up.

And it wasn’t that easy, I can tell you! Extremely steep and slippy.
