France 2008

Talloires, 26-28 June

  We went through more mountain country between Briançon and Talloires. *
  Talloires is on Lake Annecy, and we took the ferry that goes clockwise around the lake three times daily. *
  *
  *
  *
  The lakeside château at Duingt. *
  *
  View approaching the ferry dock at Annecy. *
  A swan near the dock. *
  The river out of Lake Annecy flows through the town. This old fortress looks attractive, but it housed a rather dull museum. *
  There were plenty of visitors to the town. †
  *
  View of the lake from near the ferry terminal. †
 
  Looking towards the mountains, with Château de Menthon-Saint-Bernard prominent in late afternoon. *
  Entry staircase at Château de Menthon-Saint-Bernard. *
     

Then off through more mountains to Spiez in Switzerland.
