Sept. 22; Jet d’Eau & Mt. Saleve

Today we did more sightseeing around Geneva and from different perspectives. Michel got us out early and took us down to the banks of Lake Geneva.

Swans, ducks and pigeons.

The famous iconic image of Geneva -the Jet d’Eau– starts up exactly at 10 am and we were there for the official start, a young visitor was recruited to push the button.

We were getting a little wet from the spray!

The Niton rocks, dating from the last ice age, protrude from the lake and are the reference point for all surveying in Switzerland.

In the afternoon we took a ride into France and up onto Mt. Saleve, a prominent point overlooking Geneva.

Robert  & I took the ‘Telepherique’ or cable car down to the base of the mountain, while Michel & Raymonde drove down. They made it down before us! They then took us on a driving tour around the canton of Geneva.

Another delicious meal, pork chops, potatoes, wax beans with mustard vinaigrette and homemade bread!
