Seeblick, Gwatt, Switzerland

Along this stretch of the “Seeuferweg” (lake shore path) are perfect homes for twitchers: this area is separated from the Thunersee by large reed beds full of nesting birds. We walked from Schadau to Gwatt Camping yesterday and my muscles are still aching satisfactorily. I wondered, as we passed this section of the walk, how people can earn enough money to have such houses in such locations, without inheriting them from family. I suppose that the closed shutters on the more modern buildings would indicate that they belong to rich townies, who travel down on sunny weekends to look at the view.
