Lake Lucerne

By TrevBatWCC    
Had it not been for the nasty Coronavirus, I had hoped after returning from my Isle of Man holiday back in March to book a holiday to Switzerland for around now, August time. However that got knocked on the head, so it's Costa del Wakefield instead 😢
So, here's one from my first visit to Switzerland, when I took a week's holiday there, staying in Meiringen. On the first full day there, we had an included day out to Lucerne, travelling on the train from the local railway station, which was just a couple of hundred metres down the road from the hotel - our coach picking us up in Lucerne and returning us to Meiringen at the end of our visit. Though the weather was hot & sunny for the rest of the holiday, it rained for most of the day on this outing! ☔ Did have an enjoyable train ride and visit to this lovely Swiss city, however, and took this shot looking out across the lake towards the pleasure paddle steamer 'Schiller' which was returning to the landing stage. Looking back, didn't upload this at the time, so bottom of the barrel scraping, re-processed it to inflict it on EPZers… 😁

Lovely capture and brings back memories of my wife and me when we were on a similar boat on Lake Montreux on a school holiday back in 1964GrinGrin A life time ago.

Brings back fond memories... lovely composition...we were due to go to Amsterdam next week, but we've had to settle for a visit to friends in Kent and a few days in London...damn virus 🥴
A lovely capture of this beautiful lake Trev, hopefully you will be able to re visit when the virus passes!.

A great image of this tourist boat and beautiful Lake Lucerne surrounded by mountains and an interesting narrative.

Evocative of times when the freedom to go on holiday was perhaps taken for granted! A very appealing image Trevor and a cheering reminder of what we have to look forward to! 😀

A fine vista, Trev, but hey, Costa del Wakefield has its moments too 🙂 the clouds are really sitting on those mountains, makes a very atmospheric scene. Great capture.

I can feel that bracing air Trev - my only visit to Switzerland was our honeymoon to Lugano in October 1971!
Such a lovely clean country.
Your train journey sounds wonderful.
We travelled by train as my late husband worked in a railway office back then.

Fine shot, Trev: brings back memories of when we had a Cotter's Coach Tour to Interlaken in 1967 and on one day had an excursion along the shores of Lake Brienz, over the Brunig Pass and on to Lucerne. Such a beautiful city with photo opportunities at every turn.
