One of my favourite treats in the warm season is to have breakfast down by the lake.
The tranquility of the water, the graceful sailing boats gliding by
and, a little dot in the distance in the middle of the picture, watching
the old steam boats stop at the various ports
in Switzerland and neighbouring France.
A delicious choice of assorted bakery
and a peach juice
and a double espresso coffee with a perfect frothy topping!
Lifting up our eyes, we saw a steam boat go by from our table.
Then I noticed this sweet little fellow sitting on a chair near our table, obviously waiting for crumbs!
Some fluttering and chirping brought my eyes back to my own breakfast being dive-bombed by a greedy little trio! A quick photo and then a mad wave of my napkin to scare away the cheeky sparrows!
A long walk along the lake front to take advantage of the lovely weather conditions and enjoy the view.
That little sailing boat turned round at the same time as us and we saw a rowing boat coming
into view with a very fit-looking crew manning the oars!
Yes, having breakfast down by the lake
is one of my favourite things!
An important note:
If you click on each photo, they will become bigger and fill your screen.
This option had not been working for a couple of months. I am happy to see that the photos can now be enlarged again on everyone's blogs, including this one!
