posts for september 2012.

yesterday, when the weather was surprisingly beautiful, we were outside. me, mostly hanging around with my telephoto lens, watching the kittens play, hide, and explore.

later, on the inside, i took some photos of the older cats as well, while they were waiting for food:

they had to wait a bit longer. first, we did some cooking: a vegetarian zürcher geschnetzeltes (based on dinki) with rösti. won’t be the last time we had that :)

today was the first time that miukumauku was lying on our bed with another one of our cats and both ended up licking at each other. this is the best sign that the cats start to accept each other. what a beautiful moment that was!

last weekend, we were in brand, austria. the weather was great, despite the mixed forecast.


on the first day, we visited the lünersee, a water reservoir for the lünerseewerk power plant. it is a beautiful mountain lake which can be accessed by a cable car. here are some photos:


during summer, there are two cable cars in brand itself, namely the dorfbahn and the panoramabahn. the dorfbahn starts directly in the town, while the panoramabahn starts at the end of the dorfbahn and crosses a valley. the view is really magnificent! there is a nice and easy walking trail from the top of the panoramabahn back to the top of the dorfbahn, which we took. here are some impressions:

today, while being in bauma, we saw a steam locomotive from the dampfbahn-verein zürcher oberland. they usually operate on sundays from may through october between hinwil and bauma. (and yes, it’s on our to-do list!)
here are two snapshots of the train:
