Keeping fingers cross and hoping that today will be a better day than yesterday weatherwise. It really only rained once yesterday, but began in the late morning and continued until this morning. I had to go shopping but knew that with either the scooter or electric wheelchair I would be soaked through so I did a first one with the local train. I discovered it is ideal. The train has a half hour schedule and so no problem. It is only three stations. I get on at the first, and get off at the third – just a few minutes, however ……. yes although the transport was perfect, I was just not so prepared as I should have been. I arrived at the station, got my ticket out of the machine and a train arrived from the other direction. It was then that I realised everyone on the train had a mask. Me, of course I have masks, 20 pieces all brand new in a packet at home, but I forgot to wear one as they were at home.
As it is now law I knew I would have to go home at get mine. For a normal person just a few minutes, but for me, double the time, so I missed my train. When I returned to the stop I had another 10 minutes to wait.
But I had my mask and so there was no problem athough I looked like something from a horror film. Travelling was ok. I had my walker with me and did not bother to sit in the train, although there were enough seats available. I did the walk to the store from the station, just a few minutes, and did the shopping. I was soon back at the station to catch the train home.
At least I could take a few photos whilst waiting for the train. This top floor apartment was opposite the station. It belongs to a house. I have often seen it from a distance, but now had time to examine it sitting opposite.
Otherwise all I got was views of the railway and part of the station when I was waiting for the train to arrive.
I noticed the flags were still hanging from our 1st August National day celebrations. This one shows the flag emblem of our village Feldbrunnen with a stylised castle and our fountain (Brunnen means fountain), although the brunnen has now been reduced to a stone water trough on the village square (and you have to search to find the square).
This morning I am a little pressed for time. My cleaning lady is here and in between I was cooking lunch. This afternoon I am really hoping that the sun will arrive. According to the weather forecast it should be a sunny afternoon and perhaps now and again rain but according to the weather report, the rain has now shifted to the East of Switzerland. We are in the middle at the top. I have no particular things to do today, so might just go for a wheelie somewhere to have a change of scenery. I also want to organise a card for journeys on the train so that I do not have to buy a ticket every time I used the train. They are also a few cents cheaper.
Hope you are all keeping well and the weather is with you. I have had enough of rain for the time being and railway views.
