Annecy is another picturesque town on a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains. That seems to be the theme this week. As is renting a bike to explore the lakefront. I took the easy flat trail, but there are also much more ambitious trails for people like Carol and Gary.
I stopped to watch people playing chess in a public park
And even though it was a Monday afternoon, there were plenty of people in the parks and in the water.
The historic center of Annecy is especially picturesque with its ancient buildings, narrow pedestrian streets, canals, and boats for lake cruises.
This is perhaps the most photographed spot of all - the "Palais de l'Isle" a prison built in the twelfth century.
