…the lake is not frozen yet. What a pity as it would have been such a great experience to walk across the lake (i.e. across its full length) with the glorious sunshine we are having today, on New Year’s Day.

But (fortunately) humans do not control the weather…  😉

So I guess we’ll go closer to home, to Mauvernay (what I would describe as Lausanne’s natural ‘snow park’).  😉


It was well worth it: there was plenty of snow; it made for a very nice walk, even if our feet were a little cold towards the end. We even saw a young deer in the woods, so nice!
