Another weekend, another walk... I've just realised we have been walking faster than I can blog about so this is a post about last Sunday when we decided to ditch our traditional walk to the forest of Pfannenstiel to check out a trail recommended by friends. The trail is called the Küsnachter Tobel (yes that's a mouthful...) and starts from the pier in the town of Küsnach (10 min on the train from Meilen or Zürich HB).
And we're glad we did!! The trail is only 7km and on easy terrain inside beautiful gorges following a small river. In the Küsnachter Tobel, we found erratic boulders...
as well as rare animal species such as this (über cute!!) pair of Mandarin ducks
The sun was shining, we'd packed a picnic, it was a perfect day!
There were loads of waterfalls to be admired and little dark caves in the rocks. I was asked to strike a Gollum pose in front of the camera but politely refused...
We walked all the way up the Tobel and found signs for Pfannenstiel there so we ended walking all the way back to Meilen through the forest so we did do our traditional Sunday walk after all!
Since we get (hang on a minute, Mr T gets, as I am currently a lady of leisure...) Friday and Monday off for the Easter weekend, there should be more adventures to be shared with you next week. And also, a crafty ta-da moment coming soon. The baby blanket should be finished really soon (and before the baby has arrived! there's progress...) and there may even be an Easter crafty surprise ;-)
