Nyon, Switzerland

The lakeside village that has got Flatwater, Oklahoma, easily beat for ambiance and good views

Nyon under ice, January 2005


If presently you wish not to see photographs of a walk through beautiful Nyon, Switzerland, then this is certainly the wrong Web page for you. You'll only grow angry and threaten your health. But you're welcome anyway. No charge.

The last few weeks of January 2005 was the season of the bise, the murderous northern wind that closed off the main road to my village of Bassins for three days and iced the Nyon waterfront up properly.

The quai at Rive-Est with cold waves off Lake Geneva (Lac Léman), 27 January 2005

The crane-like thing on the jetty of Rive-Est is . . . a crane. For lifting out yachts with, we should all have our own.

This is where we normally picnic in summer

This could be you. Keep up your health plan, if you have one, disaster could strike at any moment.

Lovely Rive-Est, but the hot dog man has taken his hot dog van away for the winter, not surprisingly. No worries, he'll be back in the summer. We have that to look forward to.
