It has been a beautiful day here in the Bernese Oberland. The sun shone in a clear blue sky. When we played tennis at 11.00am the digital display at the nearby Central Sport said it was 27 degrees. This afternoon, sheep in the pasture below our balcony stood in the shade and continued their atonal bell ringing.
The weather looks set to change tomorrow, at least for the one day, but the sky tonight is magnificent. Even now, at close to midnight, the temperature is 20 degrees. The sheep have fallen silent, but insects are still buzzing around. It feels like we are in the Mediterranean, only with more hills.
