First barbecue of the year

Gosh...I can't believe it is April already and I have just got around to posting about the barbecue we had  back in March in Wetzikon. The end of March has been busy with a work-related trip to Glasgow with plenty of opportunities to catch up with old Glaswegians friends and followed by a weekend in Mr T's family in North Yorkshire. I am off again on Friday to Scotland for work for 10 days so this Easter weekend has been spent catching up on rest on household chores. This next trip will likely be my last trip to the UK until Baby Suisse is born as I will not be allowed on a plane for much longer... I will skip the embarassing story at Basel airport when the security officer asked me what I was smuggling under my top (doh!...a baby!) and show you some pics of the woods in Wetzikon where we went for a stroll and a barbecue with some friends a few weeks back to celebrate the beginning of Spring.

Swiss woodlands are full of unexpected wood sculptures but the one in Wetzikon has some really original ones!







The walks in this woodland are very pleasant and the several water features break up the monotony of the trees.


Frog spawn
Not that it was a particular hot day that day but Alf decided to spend the day climbing rocks...


...and most importantly playing in the river!

... resulting in one very wet otter dog!


To top up a very fun day, a barbecue was had in one of the communal barbecue areas kindly provided and maintained by the council in the woodlands

Great spot for a barbecue!


I hope you've all had a very nice Easter weekend. Mine was spent sewing a dress for a friend's birthday which I hope to be able to reveal soon!

Love all the wood sculptures! Very Whimsical :) I can't imagine anything like that would survive too long in Glasgow - very jealous!
