Outdoor art

We left Chur and headed to Bad Ragatz, a well-known spa town with a popular golf course that was celebrating a summer of art with a display of outdoor sculptures.  We wandered through the town, enjoying the mountain views and the wonderful art. Here’s a sampling.  Only the man on the bench is a permanent installation.

We also did a little mild shopping, and Biffy found a typical Swiss shirt – on sale, of course. There were other pleasures, including this simple cow

and the view over window boxes to the river.

The views, as always, were lovely, too.  Here is the church with the mountains behind the steeple.
