A sunny spring day at lake Neusiedl

Today we made a day trip to Lake Neusiedl,
a big lake in the plains only half an hour by train from Vienna ;)

The temperatures were nearly Spring,
and the ice on the lake began to melt.

The day was so bright that you could even see the Schneeberg in the distance, awell-liked 2000 m mountain situated at the eastern edge of the Austrian Alps.

The sky was so soft and blue, and the warm sun made the ice sparkle.

My dear hub enjoyed the warm sun. He seems to be deep in thoughts, maybe he is reflecting on his 65th birthday which he celebrated yesterday?

I felt so good! What could be better than a pleasant day in the sun?

In the evening we took the train back to Vienna.

When we waited for the train to come,
a sundog (???) appeared in the western sky.

It was the first sundog I ever saw (if it was a sundog)!

A glorious sunset made our farewell from Lake Neusiedl even sweeter!

Have a nice week ahead!

Hi Maria!
oh, beautiful sunset this is!
this weekend we had the first snow in this winter in Tokyo.
here it's cold and it's not getting warm.
but probably it's warmer than near lake Neusiedl.
because water is not frozen even outside here!
