Lavaux Vineyards

The two children walked along the wall above the vineyards
Younger brother went first and big sister in the rear
just to make sure his balance was right.
Through them, I lived that moment so completely:
Balance
Beauty
and
Unforgettable childhood memories.

A wonderful walk through the vineyards
on a perfect day in May

Walking above villages and small towns
surrounded by the vines and their fresh new leaves
overlooking the incomparable beauty of the Lake Léman

Just look at those cut-out leaves in soft tones of brown and green.
See the little bunches where the grapes will form.

Steep roads leading down to the lake area

A well-known village called St. Saphorin on the edge of the lake.

The best walk of the year so far!

A perfect day for sailing boats with just the right amount of breeze

Like little toy boats gliding across the blue ripples of the water.

Beautiful tiled roofs against the blue of the lake

One last look at the end of the lake with two strips of  reflected
white sheen from the snow still on the mountain peaks.

As we get down into the village, there are beautiful decorated signs.
This one is for a restaurant called:
L'Auberge de l'Onde

This one tells us that there is wine tasting in the local wine cellar

A golden heart
How better to end this series of vineyards in this lovely area
not too far at all from where I live.
