Weekend Trip

I'LL BEGIN BY focusing on what was great about this past weekend (the not-so-great parts will be forthcoming!). We had a wonderful time visiting Annecy and Geneva. The weather could not have been better and the scenery was spectacular. I'm not going to waste time with the play-by-play of the trip. We're going to upload an album that can be accessed at the top of this page, but here a just a few photos from the trip. (Note: thanks Soupe du Jour, but we got your offer for a quick coffee too late. That would have been fun).

A quick gelato along Rue Perrière, Annecy

Lake Annecy with the beautiful (still) snow-capped Alps in the background.

Collonges-sous-Saleve, France -- the college where Kerri spent 4 weeks when she was 16.

Main building of The Geneva School of Dipomacy and Internatioanl Relations -- one of the main reasons for our visit to Geneva.

Flowers in bloom at the Jardin botanique de Genève

You have to take this photo, don't you?


The Geneva 'sprayey-thing' (Henry's term)

It was a long drive home...

...but it wouldn't have been as long if we were driving this car!

We loved the cities and the gorgeous countryside. Stunning!
(Teaser #2: I mentioned in an earlier post that our car was somewhere along the Route de Napoleon. Well, not only is it still there, it ain't coming back! More to come.)

OK, I'm hooked. What happened to the car?

Awesome photos! That's where my dad used to live all last year.... and you'll be pleased to know that this summer the Tour's doing a timed-trial around the Lac d'Annecy for one of the stages.

He's so bummed we aren't going to be around this summer!

No worries! I have not been online a lot! I'm glad you came last week as Annecy is cold and wet this week - it still has its charm but last week was really glorious weather!
