Actually they were rowing.
Really great rowers. Participants of the Swiss National Rowing Regatta which was being held in the next village over, Cham where we go to the grocery store.
Cham loves their rowing:
In fact they have an amazing rowing sculpture dedicated to the rowing club:
|Carved out of wood to show motion.|
|Up close - so cool.|
And on our weekly jaunt to the store we discovered that all of Switzerland came to row their boats in Cham:
At one point, the Lake Zug tour boat came through the middle of the Regatta:
|Remember this boat, Joan and Bernie? And Helen?|
We even had a local photographer ask to take our picture WATCHING the Regatta. We'll find out on Wednesday if we made it in newspaper. (It will be our second brush with the local media here. :)
At the end of the day, the rowers take their boats and head back to their lives:
Now I'm going to float my poem by you...enjoy!
