Alpine weekend sunshine to tide us over

Saturday was almost warm and sunny and the views of the mountain peaks in the Swiss Alps were clear. We took a walk through a narrow street in Venthone and suddenly saw this through a gap.

Later that day we spotted our first cat shadows of the season. At the end of the Val d'Anniviers is a cat that visits the glacier and peaks every summer, always on its side, sometimes tall and sitting, as he is here. We think he likes to observe the people in the valley, a bit warily.

Later in the summer, and at a certain point in the evening he becomes quite round, sitting down more comfortably after a day of chasing mice across the peaks, we presume.

The week has begun and it is raining everywhere, but the memory of Saturday's sun stays with us.
