    Canoeing on the lake

    A travel blog entry by johncowell on Aug 07, 2015

    Today Ruth and I took a canoe on the lake. We wanted to explore it more close to the coast. It was great fun apart from the burden on your shoulders. After an hour of paddling, our shoulders and forearms were worn out. We then had a relaxing afternoon by the pool, followed by a last supper at home before moving on to ...

Lisa and Ruth found all the jewellery shops - we also frequented a few makeup and granita shops. We had a lovely afternoon wandering in the sun.

The hire company had given us a map with suggested routes for our time in the lake. We decided to ...

    Ok so today was the day off from the holiday. Lisa is still fighting a cold and we had planned to take it easy. I started my holiday book, caught up on Hell on Wheels a great American drama about building the railways from the east to the west. Very gritty but a good story. I decided to talk a walk locally ...

    ... We then rang the apartment manager and met up in Ossuccio. The apartment is great; lovely views, pool and everything you need. We unpacked and drove to Lenno to the supermarket. It was mega busy. We did well, wine, cheese, whisky, bread. A few other items and then headed back. The Sat Nav took us back up a mountain path and I have got very good at 3 point turns. Lisa then made a lovely Italian fresh food feast and we ...
