Day 9 - late afternoon
For a good half an hour, Michel and I continued to leisurely walk further away from our hotel. The main street was pretty much deserted except for a few occasional cars passing by! We did however encounter a few couples from the tour along the route who just like us, were taking fully advantage of the day by taking a stroll along the lake.
The small town's atmosphere was charming and quite picturesque especially Maggiore Lake located right next to the sidewalk. The day’s temperature continued to be mild and warm even though it was by now close to 5:00pm. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
Back at the hotel, I definitely took the time to do a more thorough tour of the grounds by going all around it. Once again, these proved to be quite amazing especially with the trees blooming with flowers at this time of year. It was a photographer’s paradise if you ask me!
Looking in the horizon, the sky was still hazy over the lake but let me tell you this surely helped in capturing the magical effect that the gigantic Alps had over the place.Monique :-)
