Winter/Spring

Assorted winter/spring pictures, including Lausanne, Lyon, and Bern.


This skating rink was one of the few good deals in Geneva - free skating, and skate rental only 2 CHF The bench in the background is supposed to be the longest wooden bench in the world


A model at the Tavel house, one of the oldest houses in Geneva and now a free museum. Geneva was surrounded by massive fortifications until the mdi 1800s. A sledding trip - we were able to take the train up from Nyon.




Old weaponry at the Geneva Museum of Art and History These fortifications were discovered when excavating for a parking garage close to the old town of Geneva


Peter discusses the fortifications In the park next door - Parc de la Grange - after a snowstorm


After a massive wind storm during ice cold weather, this is what you got on Lake Geneva






Rescuing a swan stuck in the ice


Peter gets to go to a birthday party


Back at the Bois de la Batie park - the lake is still frozen The confluence of the 2 rivers - one glacial, one from Lake Geneva


Sentier de Sous Terre - along the Rhone river. There's some old ruins here, interesting to the kids because of all the lizards basking in the sun there. Old pumping station


Impressive echo under this bridge A view from the top, including the pumping station and the Jet d'eau in the background


Another view of the merging of the Arve and Rhone We took the train to Nyon. It was a very short train ride - only about 10 minutes
