Vol XVII – #094 – Meggen’s Monday

This is an amazing place for sunsets. Wherever you are around here, you can watch the sun melt over the horizon, or the Manitous, or the breakwater, or nearby trees. Breathe a deep sigh, do a hand stand, grab a fishing pole. Above all this weekend: Happy Independence!
