Lac d’Aiguebelette, France to La Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland

It was raining when we woke up this morning and it rained most of the day.

We had a great breakfast at La Bageatière where we were staying.

It stopped raining long enough for us to pack up.

We drove into the Alps to the town of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc. Unfortunately we couldn’t see the top of Mont Blanc but we had many glimpses of the stunning mountains through the clouds.

On the way to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc
In Chamonix-Mont-Blanc we stopped and walked around a bit and then had hot chocolate We only got a bit wet.

From Chamonix-Mont-Blanc it was only a few miles further east over the mountains until we were in Switzerland.

Overlooking the Rhône valley in Switzerland.

Tonight we are staying in La Tour-de-Peilz on Lac Léman.

Lac Léman from our hotel.

The sun came out as we were checking in. But then a bit later an enormous storm with lightening, thunder, hail and rain completely obscured the view

For dinner we had pizza at a nearby pizza place
