Ile St-Pierre

Walk to the Ile St Pierre, Sunday 21st September 2014


Sunshine, blue sky and some cumulo-nimbus clouds that’s the setting at Erlach as  6 of us set off at 11:30 am from Erlach for a 4,5 km walk to the Cloister at Ile St Pierre.

At 12:30 we had  already reached the Cloister  and were enjoying a self-served lunch at the island cafeteria. Meanwhile, Micheline had a short nap on the bench next to us and later, Hartmut, Renate and their dog Cheeta, Martha and myself left for an edifying visit of the island and Rousseau’s apartment while in exile in 1875 after having written the revolutionary “Contrat social”.

Round 2:15 pm , Don, Micheline, Martha and I walked back to the parking while Renate and Hartmut took the boat which arrived at 3:15 pm just on time to have a drink at the next door café and hit the road before a heavy rain storm!

It’s a pity we were so few for such an interesting  and  sporty  happening of our Club!
