Our drive out of the valley was just as it was when we drove in the first day…stunning !
Fact is, we even made a stop along side the river about 20 minutes after we started out, just to see and feel the cold water from the glaciers one more time. As you pull out of the canyon, you have 2 very large and beautiful lakes directly in front of you in Interlaken. The color of the lakes is that slightly dull green/blue that also comes from the glaciers. We followed the eastern lake all the way to the end and then turned north and headed over a steep pass that would take us to Lucerne (about 60 miles away). Unfortunately, even with all the beauty that was around us, we all had something that was on our mind, and that was that our visit and travels with Mikleane, Rick, Lil-Lou, and Drew was drawing to a close. Our “Camping Partners” only had one more night to “camp” in “Dragonfly”, and I was to make my last “2 pot” morning coffee. There is no doubt, they fit into this “camping” gig like pros, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see them camping again. The weather in Lucerne had turned hot again, and when we arrived about noon, we were all ready to get in the shade and stay there. The only problem, was we hadn’t had lunch yet and everyone had a place they wanted to go too. Fortunately for me, I was able to stay around the camp with Louise, and the rest headed out for Lucerne for the last time and to find that something special for lunch. For us staying behind, we volunteered to go grocery shopping for our lastnights dinner, which turned out to be spaghetti. After dinner and washing of dishes, we just sat around, with the tables lit with candles, and enjoyed reviewing the last 2 weeks and all that we had tasted, tried, explored, fed, and seen. Just about no one went to bed early, but come 11, and the table was dark, all were in bed and ready for that early wake-up call. Tomorrow….came too fast !!!
