SUNDAY IN LEUKERBADT

“Sweet life continues in the breeze, in the golden fields.”

Jack Kerouac, Book of Sketches

I woke up, a first time, with the sun trying to shine through the stores of the bedroom and enlightening lightly the space.

Of course, I went back to sleep at first, but the sunlight became slowly more intense and powerful…

No matter what’s ahead of you, everything is better when you’ve had a good breakfast! Especially if eaten on a beautiful terrace with the heat of the sun on your skin!

What next? Leukerbad!

So, we took the car and started driving smoothly on the highway with the radio on until the climbing started.

This is not the first time I’ve gone to Leukerbad, but it is the first time I go there in the summer. The sky is blue, decorated by a few white clouds that seem like foam. The sun is shining on the green trees and the scenery is just spectacular!

The view from the baths was spectacular as usual, but the water was too warm for my taste. It is agreeable during winter and fall, or even spring when it’s still chilly outside and you can bathe in the hot water, sometimes even while snowflakes come down. However, on a warm day it is not what I prefer.

To conclude our evening a wonderful greek dinner at Restaurant des Iles (Sion), by a small lake where people where still doing paddle and swimming at 7 p.m.

The food was great, the ambience was superb and that’s how another week-end easily went by as if time had been accellerated by that refreshing breeze that was blowing on my shoulders as I finished my beer…
