Hues of Soft Pink

The Eole
created by Clelia Bettua,
is a large, semi-circular wind vane with a diameter of 20 metres
by the lakeside at Ouchy Port.
It follows the prevailing wind direction
and four monoliths located at a distance of 150 metres
enable this work of art to be read.
You can check the direction of the wind by combining the semi-circle of the vane
with the semi-circles carved into the stone.

The wind blowing when this photo was taken
is simply called 'Le Vent'.
It's a south-westerly wind, very common in the summer.

Coming into port at sunset.

Three birds in a row
perched at the very top of these masts.

I shall be away for about a week to go up into the mountains
to attend my son's August wedding!
