A surprise wedding proposal by Lake Thun. I gave Phillip instructions on how to get there by bus (10-15 minutes from Interlaken.). Phillip had brought with him some food and wine for a picnic by the lake.
We arranged everything by e-mail and the couple found there way to the spot with the help of Google maps. It was difficult for me to be “invisible”. There was only the three of us there! I managed it by acting like a tourist.
The swan and the duck appeared on cue. (I have them well trained and they cost extra.)
The weather is always a problem. It is hard to predict. I had to keep in contact with Phillip by e-mail to choose the best time. He also had my mobile telephone number. This is useful for sending messages but it’s expensive to call. I had to call a client in Interlaken last week and the call was routed through Shanghai where he lives!
