We caught the boat for the 35 minute ride to Evian. This boat is nowhere near as nice as the paddle steamers although the first class seating was in soft leather.
Evian is in France but it is very clean and tidy and pleasant to walk around. Being Sunday a number of places were closed including the big water building (Source Cachaf) while the spring in town was closed for renovations and the Palais Lumiere Cultural Centre was between exhibitions.
|The Source Cachaf building was closed on Sundays|
|There were several of these wooden "sculptures" dotted around the town.|
|The funicular machinery was open for people to see|
|Salad with prosciutto and figs|
|Scallops with risotto|
|Captain of La Suisse|
|Chateau de Chillon|
|At Chillon La Suisse makes a connection with the Vevey which gives a good chance to see the Vevey from the water. I couldn't decide which of these two pictures to use so I have used both|
We have now traveled on La Suisse three times and each time there has been the same lady in first class. She is well known to the crew who occasionally offer her a glass of wine and occasionally chips. Many of the crew come up and speak to her. Today someone brought up a hand written manuscript with pictures for her to peruse. She waved to the driver of a train at Chillon who whistled back. Curious.
