Still in France with Mathew

We had a very relaxing day yesterday with Mathew.  We took the lake cruise to Annecy to check it out.

This is the lake tourist boat.  The lake is at 500 meter altitude with beautiful mountains around going to 2350 meters.  There are several castles on the lake front from the 15th-19th centuries which make for a very nice tour.  This as also a big area for paragliding (which is why Matt is here) and the sky is full of colorful wings all day long.

After that we went to Annecy. It is a very beautiful town on canals.

We spent the rest of the afternoon laying by the pool and relaxing.  We polished off several bottles of wine and Matt cooked up a fine dinner.  Very relaxing and nice.

Today we are heading to Italy to see Dino and company.   — I’ll keep you posted!
