The small marina@Nyon at dusk


After our drive up into the Juras we headed to Nyon in time to catch the last hour of sunshine. This evening the fading light was superb on Lac Léman and across to the French Alps.

Wonderful pics to remind us of such a beautiful part of the world. The mountains (Les Memises) across the lake in your 'towards Montreux' photograph were where we thought we'd be spending our retirement! Fate had another idea.

Enjoy your working holiday.
