This is beach of Sihlsee. It is just 10 minutes by bike from my flat. Unbeliefable but I am living in a village where other people are having their holidays.
In summer I often go to the beach with the kids. There is a small street alongside the lake only for walkers normally, but with the kids you can do it with the bike. Noboday will claim about that.
Very often I also go back to the lake with the bike late in the afternoon, when I arrive from office, just for swimming a couple of meters in the fresh water.
This year the weather was so cold the whole summer, that I was only 3 times in water. We were at the beach several times in July, but later in August, the weather was not good enough. And summer is over in Einsiedeln end of August. Then the water gets too cold, below 20 degrees which is too cold then.
