A Great View, a Bear, and a Sea Monster?

When mom was on her Big World Assignment to Switzerland, she had to have a base where she could start each daily Big World Expedition from.

Wowza, mom!  What a great view you had from your balcony!  And that is the Niederhorn mountain peak there on the right!  And people were enjoying themselves swimming in the cool lake water.

Mom's base camp was the Hotel Jagerhof-Hubertus in the lake resort town of Faulensee, on the Thunersee.

 Mom told me that when she checked in, she met a Bear. 
Very funny, mom.  You know I only like LIVE animals!

Mom was able to see a kaleidoscope of scenes from her balcony.  And when daytime turned to dusk, what did she see?

A black Sea Monster!

Well, it was not really a "Sea Monster".  It was a Dog, who was maybe of the Pointer variety.  He wanted to keep swimming and his owner kept whistling for him to come out of the lake.  Mom watched them for quite some time.

Finally the dog got out of the water and they went on their way.  I bet they have no idea they are now famous on JB's Big World blog!

And here is a clue to my next animal friend.
Stay tuned for more details in my next Swiss post!

Before you go, please stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!
