A bus from Salzburg to Berchtesgaden and another to Konigsee and we were off to cruise to the end of this pretty lake.
The weather was beautiful, the lake was calm and the scenery magnificent.
St Bartholoma Abbey comes into view and the boat makes a brief stop
before heading off towards the end of the lake.
where the boat sweeps around and finally pulls into a small jetty.
The next section of this journey is a walk.
First along the lake
turning to set off through the gap in the mountains towards another lake,
crossing a tiny stream
and through a pretty wooded area
and finally you come upon another lake, famous for its reflections.
Ah yes, this is what we came for !
Out come the cameras
No matter which direction you look
There's a path that winds round the edge of the lake
and Tony heads off clicking away
But suddenly across the lake a breeze begins to ripple the water
and as the ripples come closer and closer
the beautiful reflections disappear !
Weren't we lucky ?
