Sunrise over the Alps

This is the view from our kitchen window. The last couple of mornings the Alps have been shrouded in fog. Today they were outlined by a glorious sunrise.

I am certain that eventually I will get used to the sight and perhaps not even fully notice it. But for now I find myself staring in amazement.

I lived in Montreux for 1.5 years which was right at the foot of the Alps. But not a day went by that I wasn't amazed at the incredible views. I think you just take it with a grain of salt and realize how lucky you are! really...

What a gorgeous view. I could waste away many a happy breakfast looking at that!

Yes, Expat Traveler, we are indeed fortunate.

But Beth, unfortunately I am unable to enjoy the view at breakfast. GLH has staked a claim on the seat facing the window, so I sit with my back to it. But at least it is all mine during the day while he goes to work!
