Traveling from Chamonix to Lake Annecy we went through some breathtaking views through the Alps. The city is quite gorgeous, a favorite Lakeside destination for French families in summer. After a walk through 'Little Venice' taking the sights of a town voted the most beautiful in France, i had a lovely lunch of the local (from Nice) Niçoise salad in a central location before taking the one hour boat trip on the lake.

... some pain, the first pain aux raisins of the tour and some tea. It was so hot on the terrace, such a contrast from our previous descent.
We reached our stop for the night, La Maison de Joséphine, by about 1:30pm.

Onwards we pushed to the Alps with the scenery getting increasingly spectacular. Soaring massive mountains parted for us as we cruised up the valley alongside a rushing river. The object of desire was the climb of the Alpe d'Huez of Tour de France claim. We luckily missed out on the angry black ...
