A Day in Geneva, When the Sun Came Out

by Valerie on February 18, 2010 · 3 comments

At some point around lunchtime during our day in Geneva, the sun truly came out. I was so happy to see it, and it was the perfect time to walk alongside the Lake. We saw the Jet de Genève

fountain (it had not been on earlier in the day) which is one of the landmarks of Geneva.

This shot of the hotels on the Quai de de Genève

is actually the landmark I associate with Lake Geneva even more than the fountain above.

It was a lovely day – I rediscovered a city I had always liked (and lived close to for most of my childhood and teenage years) and husband got to newly discover it. As I remembered, Geneva feels much more French than Lausanne (which is where I lived for several years).

These pictures are absolutely stunning. I am so happy that you got to have a sunny day to enjoy Geneva. It is one of my top five favourite cities that I have visited.

Beautiful pictures! (This post and the others too.) I'd love to get to Switzerland someday – I have cousins there. Your pics make me feel like I was there too! By the way, did your guy mention that we judged together for the morning Jessup round? So much fun! (For us, not the competitors, haha.)

Ellecubed & messybaker – glad you liked the pictures :)

And messybaker, yes, my husband did mention he was on the same judging panel as you :)
