It is only a little before Aigle that we came into wine country dominated by the Chateau d'Aigle. I took many pictures of this when we were there a few weeks ago so I just sat and enjoyed the view.

We took the Lausanne metro to Ouchy and embarked upon La Suisse where Mary had saved a table and provided a bottle of wine. There was a large group on boear and we quickly moved to a quieter table but the journey was once again delightful. We have now made this trip several times so I did not take pictures but merely enjoyed the experience. The lady who has always been on La Suisse was once again present. I found out from a crew member that Monique is, in fact, a fare paying passenger who cruised La Suisse all the time. She has, in effect, become a member of the crew who bring her snacks etc. from time to time. It turns out that there is a man with spiky hair who also travels on La Suisse all the time - he is also in first class.
The CGN Chief Captain was on the bridge supervising a junior Captain. There were a couple of less smooth dockings that the crew remarked upon.
