St-Blaise - Auvernier
"Today we decided to go for an excursion on roller skates, combining culture and sports. From St-Blaise we skated to Hauterive, where we stopped off to visit the Laténium. Then we headed for Neuchâtel, past the swimming pool … we really wanted to try out the magic water-jump and the different types of slides – no, you're never too old for that sort of thing! But, we said to ourselves, the beach at Auvernier is waiting to welcome us, so we'll be patient. At Neuchâtel, we swapped our roller skates for flip-flops to visit the city and its castle. We took advantage of market day to buy our picnic which we shared with the swans at Auvernier. We did the return journey without a stopover … as we said, combining culture AND sport."
