We're in the foothills of the alps and the forests are magical and perfect for hikes.
You certainly would expect to see fairies and elves.
When the branch stopped for their picnic, it was a bit nippy for a late June day so we built a fire.
The wood was wet from the early morning rain so the fire was more smoke than fire if it burned at all.
All our events begin with a reading from our branch poet Marika.
The planners preferred vegetarian fare so these are the cream cheese, tomato and pepper sandwiches we had rather than pig fat dripping from bacon on bread.
I think the vegetarians were a bit too adventuresome in gathering mushrooms in the woods. Would you like to try one?
