Bouchs, Switzerland - 28th June 2009
We got an early start this Sunday and drove to Bouchs to enjoy a morning at the lake side. It’s quite idyllic early in the morning.
There’s a camping ground and different sports facilities here, like soccer fields, tennis and beach volleyball courts and a bathing center for the lake, a small harbour, places to put canus or other boats into the water or to go swimming and a nice path for pedestrians.
We meet many people who walk their dogs. Dogs are supposed to be kept on a leash but few people actually do that. I have to admit that it is fun to watch them splashing around and playing in the water, though.
Today there’s a children’s soccer tournament taking place. We can always her one parent or another yelling for their kids to go for it, watch their field position or “hop, hop”. I’m glad I’m not playing soccer.
In the harbour, where the shouts aren’t that loud anymore we come upon a family of ducks. The hen has a lot to do. She’s constantly looking around for all of her 5 chicks and calling for them probably to stay together or at least keep moving in the same direction but there’s always a straggler. One of the nearly jumps out of the water to catch some insects that are sitting on a pole a bit above the water’s edge. When it sees us so close by it quickly swims off to its nearest sibling lit panicked “peep, peeehhhhppp”s. Cute. There are also other water birds that I don’t know the name of.
The place becomes quite busy closer to midday. There are also tour boats out on the lake with folk music for the tourists and small motor planes are carrying sailing planes up into the air so we decide to have a peaceful lunch at home.
