Lake Como in the Rain

... it, so they recommended a cafe further along the lakeside. 20 minutes walk later, we were sitting there, drinking our coffees and cokes, and watching the swans and ducks on the lake. A short walk further to the next ferry stop - and the heavens opened again, only this time it was torrential. Once on the ferry we could barely see the shore!

Getting back to Como was stopped at a restaurant / gelaterie for a lovely lunch, and by 2:30 we were in the car ready to start the ...
