April 5: Just in time … Easter egg hunt!

The clock has just struck midnight, but I’m still going to say this is the post for April 5 … even though technically it’s now April 6. Who’s counting?!

We had a great day today on our Easter egg hunt – both Leos did an amazing job organising it all. On Friday we painted the eggs, Saturday afternoon the Leos hid the eggs (in the pouring rain) and today we went a’searchin.

Pastora’s Leo’s brother, sister and sister’s boyfriend joined us as well. We started near the Bern/Belp airport and finished at an outdoor picnic area further towards the city. Eichholz is also a camping place in summer, and the starting point for a great summer swim in the Aare. I say starting point, because the river flows so quickly, you’re transported to a new destination in seconds.

So, I’ll keep this short and let the photos tell the story. All up, we walked three hours and had plenty of ‘good for your mental health’ laughs. I’ve never been on an Easter egg hunt of this scale before. Next year, the guys said the girls have to organise everything – first thing we’ll do is paint the eggs a brighter colour!

Wishing you a wonderful day.

(I’m posting this so late because after we came home, we finished a Swedish TV series called ‘GSI Göteborg’ (which is also known as the ‘Johan Falk’ series) and then started on the American version of the Danish series ‘Forbrydelsen’, called ‘The Killing’. Scandinavian thriller and police shows are addictive (even though we’re watching the American version … in German … with English subtitles … I’m babbling and waffling, sorry, I’m tired. Enjoy the pics. Goodnight!)

  1. How wonderful. Sounds like a great day and sounds like the whole thing was worth all the effort – you all did well making the eggs and the Leos did well with the hiding. Can totally understand what you mean about the colours! Hope the animal enjoyed the chocolate/eggs – not sure the chocolate would have been good for them. I am surprised that the goodies in the bridge had not been taken by someone!

    I am about to start the last series of Montelbano – have thoroughly enjoyed and will be sad when it finishes. I am a huge fan of Catarella (although they overdo the door thing). Thanks again for passing them on.

    • Initially, the goodies on and around the bridge were very well hidden. We took a photo of them all together to prove to the bosses we were ready to start the next stage. I’m sure if they were all together like that someone would have pinched them. Not all Swiss are honest 🙂
      Glad you’ve been enjoying Montalbana. Catarella is normally pretty good but, yes, sometimes he’s a bit much! Hope you’ve enjoyed looking into the backyard and seeing it all spic and span. What an effort!
