On Saturday I was invited to attend a wedding reception in Einsiedeln. I was excited to go, because I had only been there a few times and only in winter.
Einsiedeln, which is located in canton Schwyz (in Switzerland, of course ^^) is famous for its monastery, Einsiedeln Abbey. There car ride there was only about half an hour with no traffic, and since the weather was so beautiful I was able to enjoy the scenery.

I returned early, since the reception had started at ten in the morning, so I decided to take my usual stroll by the lake, and discovered that it was packed with people basking in the sun. I never understood sunbathing, perhaps it's because I don't need a tan. Also, I get restless easily, therefore I don't think I'd manage to lie there in the sun for more than ten minutes, oh, and as you all know, I despise the heat. It was only thirty degrees (I say only, because in Australia it gets much otter) so I suppose I am somewhat acclimatised to hotter temperatures, but still, anything above twenty-five degrees is pushing it!

Today is a public holiday here (it's Whitsun or Pentecost), and the weather is still nice, so I might make the most of it again and go for a walk a bit later.
Did you also enjoy beautiful weather over the weekend? If so, what did you do?
