This lakeside village is called Saint-Saphorin and is famous for its delicious wines.
The vineyards are ideally situated on the steep south-facing slopes
overlooking the Lake Léman.
Our paths cross a smaller boat going in the opposite direction
and we pull away from the vineyards and villages to get a larger view
of the sky and surrounding mountains.
A structured blue rope hangs nonchalantly awaiting its moment of importance
when the time comes to attach the boat before disembarkment.
The surface of the water takes on a whole new exciting rolling and foamy aspect
as the boat moves forward
and the life-buoys decorate the summer sky reassuringly.
The conclusion of this lovely outing will be coming in a couple of days.
