Around Lake Lucerne, Switzerland

We alighted from the vessel here

The Lake Lucerne Navigation Company offer several voyages around the lake. We took the cruise from the town of Viznau to  Lucerne but we got off one stop early so we could have a long walk around the lake.

It was a brief flirtation with Lucerne and from what I saw may grow into something more meaningful in the future.

Looking back at Mt Rigi from the boat

It was hard to conceive that we had just been on top of this mountain half an hour earlier.

The houses along the lake are a mix of old and new.

Flash boat, houses, church, vineyard, it is all here

Two traditional buildings on the water and a white chateau above

Another sulpture in the gardens along the waterfront

People sit back to front in Switzerland.....

The day was sunny and brought people out of their hotels and apartments.

All the hotels along the waterfront had champagne filled buckets

After the long walk we decided to stop and have some ice cream

Surapon ordered the biggest and grandest ice cream of all.

If it was not rich enough a bowl of hot chocolate sauce came with it

Well he is a tall man.

Whilst I had mango and raspberry sorbet

We really needed the ice creams and icy cold mineral water after our long walk and why not indulge, just this once?

    Looks like such a glorious day! Your photos make me want to be there so badly. From memory there’s a lion statue in Lucerne – did you get a photo of that?

    It all looks very lovely, especially as it is cold and wet just now in Brisbane.
