Here are a few of the drawings carved into the rocks along the lakeside promenade in Montreux.

The Montreux Jazz Festival  will celebrate its 50th year this July. The festival features both paid and free performances and there is plenty to eat and drink on offer. Click on the link if you’d like to find out more about the festival’s history and who will be performing this year. I’m not sure if we’ll be able to go this year… but I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

Life on the edge…

More views of the lake… It was a bit sunnier today.

A different landscape…

We’re in Switzerland this week. Back in the old neighbourhood (Vevey / Montreux) for work and to visit friends. When we lived here we never tired of the views. The Swiss Riviera is just stunning! This week I’ll be posting photos of a different landscape, and hopefully some street scenes. It has been overcast since we arrived, but warmer than Brighton. The colours on offer are shades of blue and grey… hopefully we’ll get some sun later this week. Until then, I hope you enjoy the view.

Here are a few shots I took while walking from Clarens to Montreux. We boarded the General Guisan at the Port of Montreux and cruised around the lake for a couple of hours. One of our favourite things to do!

While strolling along the lake in Vevey today…

Back soon with more flowers and some street scenes…
