Buochs in the wet

Well, a wet day had to happen sometime. It started raining heavily just after we arrived at Buochs campsite, just SE of Lucern and hasn't really stopped for the last 18 hours. Still, we've not had much rain, almost none in the daytimes and the forecast is good again after today.

So we're hunkered down in the van, getting this blog up to date, a little craft - weaving and card making, a little reading, a lazy day.

The journey up from Meringen took us up and over the Brunigpass, not one of the highest ones but still a delightful ride, with one hairpin so intense that TomTom actually thought we were going the wrong way and told us to "Turn around when possible".

The rain was a nuisance, we put the Quick Tent awning up in a hurry and didn't manage to get things taught so its roof made a very good water collector during the night. Already improved designs for the tent are in mind.

The rain did ease off late afternoon, allowing us a quick walk round the small town of Buochs and to catch the Co-op before it closed. Not an exciting day.
