 Interlaken  (beautiful)

In the morning we only strolled around the [[strikethrough]] city [[/strikethrough]] town and made arrangements for a big private car for a drive in the afternoon.  After lunch we went to Blue Lake, a very odd small lake which, being fed by a spring, is very clear & blue.  The trees seen at the bottom from a boat are said to be petrified.  From there we went to Kanderstag passing beautiful mountain scenery on the road. Past Tune, where we had a fine, map-like view, 

we went around the north side of the Lake of Tune, thus completing a drive all around the lake.  Driving along the lake in the twilight with the many opalescent shadows carving its waters, made a beautiful picture.  We took with us a German couple who live in New Jersey.  [[strikethrough]] The [[/strikethrough]] "Mama" proved to be a great amusement with her frequent outbursts of [["Choost imachin, a toonel"]] and also a story relating the sad "death of two motorcycles."
