So where's the snow?

Muddling through life from Austria to Wales; God, life and a small black dog

Being creative

This is on one of our afternoon walks in Tamsweg by the Mur. Two guys have been beavering away for ages, making this little pond off the river. Not sure why. Maybe they just had time on their hands. It’s grown since these pictures with flowers and sculptures from things found in the river. Note the Salzburg land flag, and bird box. Wonder if kids will paddle in it in the summer?

Ice, ice, baby!

On a quiet, cold walk by the Mur in Tamsweg, we suddenly noticed the river filling with ice and the level rising. We guessed a dam of ice had burst upstream, it was spectacular. The photos don’t really do justice to the nose and flow. I rushed home to see what it was all like by the bend in the river by our house. It must have broken up by then as it wasn’t anything like. Any of you got some ice photos?

Through a window


In Tamsweg, Shloss Kuenburg is being done up, its been tatty for years, so being ever nosey I took this shot with the iphone through the window. Shame the iphone couldn’t handle the exposure at the end where all the guys were working, but I liked the curves!

St Michael to Tamsweg and cows!


Its been such a busy summer, that we haven’t had the time or energy to get up into them thar hills at all.P1320311

But I did do a wonderful walk from St Micheal to Tamsweg  with Karen.


It was just after one of the summer’s downpours, and there was snow on the tops. Perfect walking weather.P1320314

It was 11 miles but I so enjoyed it, Swingle did too, and then she wasn’t even tired when we got back! And I found some cows!

Pet Show

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The annual pet show took place in Tamsweg recently and I trotted along. Well organised and happy animals. Made me almost want to have a Guinea pig again. It was interesting how the animals palled up. One Ginea pig seemed to be sleeping through the whole thing!

Tamsweg gets a giant Jigsaw puzzle???

This certainly had the council guys matching edges and looking for right fits. The modern meets deeply traditional Austria. This Installation, named,’White noise’ is here for the summer to celebrate 40 years of ¬†Lungau culture, with lots of events taking place in it all summer. Interesting!
