Rapperswil is a small town with a medieval heart – a castle from the 11th century. We walked the famous Linden Promenade and visited the Kapucin monastery to inhale the rose garden…the whole town is immersed in the scent of roses from May to October.
The heat. I am not very heat tolerant and dogs in cars when it is 35 degrees C is not healthy. This girl was looking rather good though – her master and mistress was sitting in the car too with the AC running.
The entrance to the monastery was easily found – even if we didn’t meet any people to ask in the streets…Everybody was inside their houses.
Even the roses seemed to suffer, but they were still beautifully open and fresh.
The Linden Promenade – deer, monastery and castle views.
Sticking close to the shade of the thick walls.
Chimneys are a passion with me too. And how about having a garden on top?
Still no people – not even tourists. Finally we found some people walking in the shadows close to the lake (Lake Zürich).
Still, such a strange sight – no people in this touristic village – but it was all due to the heat. This young man did the only right thing on a day like this!
