Mom's Big World Assignment continues from Switzerland! On this installment of her report, she went to the town of Thun, which is also on the Thunersee Lake.
The 12th century Thun Castle is situated at the top of a hill, and can be seen from all over the town.
I decided not to even ask about any Castle Cat in this castle!
Once again, mom appeared to be sightseeing and not looking for animal friends. This is an old bridge in Thun, that is over the river Aare, and this is the side where the water gushes through. Mom loved seeing all the flowers everywhere.
Mom walked around to the other side which had much more calm waters. More flowers!
I was beginning to worry about the report, but thankfully, mom did not disappoint. She found me a beautiful Swan friend!
Then the Swan opened his mouth and spoke to mom!
He said, "Guten tag, to JB! Ich bin ein Schweizer Schwan!"
That means he is a Swiss Swan in German!!
The Swan told mom to look for his friends. Nearby mom found perhaps a Great Crested Grebe? Mom says she thought it was a young one.
And then a friendly Swiss Duck, pointed mom is the direction of lots of Swiss Fish! They could be a type of Trout.
Mom walked around town a little more......
What did she find? A special Swiss CAT shop but much to her dismay, and more to mine I might add, the shop was closed for the week for vacation. No Swiss souvenir for me.
I guess mom will have to return one day!
More Swiss animal friends to follow in my next post!
