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
A welcoming Christ figure before we got off the boat
Boat houses at another stop along the way
Get yer white bodies out! Swiss museum of Transport in background
Another Swiss body basking in the sun
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

Another smart hotel serving drinks out front
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?
