It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out;
it’s the grain of sand in your shoe

A lake, peaks and a queen

P 75

Early morning was just saying hello to Freddie Mercury from the rock band The Queen.
The sculpture stands in the swiss city of Montreux.

The inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.
A walk in surroundings which could be backdrop of a movie or two.

P 74

A kick of happiness is a friend with a boat and the view of Montreux
still early morning and the swiss Alps as a backdrop.

P 76

Another kick of happiness is to be the happy owner of a black mountain bike
still a little early morning and the swiss Alps not as background but as reality.
Almost up to the sky above the clouds, but still grip with the feet to the earth.
The fog will lift more and more and the sun is taking over the heights.

Everybody in the morning
Should do a good turn all right
Everybody in the night time
Should have a good time all night
Now we got a movement
Don’t shun it fun it
Can’t you see now you’re moving free?
Get some fun join our dynasty
Can’t you tell when we get it down?
You’re the one you’re the best in town
*part of “Fun it” from The Queen album “Jazz” (1978)

Not a mountain penthouse but excellent for what it’s built for – having a break.
