Summer 2014

A photographic record of whatever leapt out at us


With retirement finally gaining a good solid grip, it's time to relax and watch life go by.

You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Neighborhood walks in the late spring

Well settled into the Swiss village of Ollon, near Aigle, and with Kristin out of the country off and on during the spring, we're exploring the neighborhood. [Click on the photos to proceed.]

What's next?

A few days in Aosta, Italy, and a hike in the Valpelline, late October. Then, after Kristin's semi-annual book sale at the Geneva "Library in English", we're off for a few weeks in late November in Lucca, with side trips and short stays in Asti and Alba whilst going and coming back. We haven't planned any further ahead than that yet, because . . . well, you know.
