On the weekend we checked the forecast and noticed Saturday was clear and sunny while Sunday would be rainy, so we hopped on a train to head into the mountains and make the most of the clear sunny weather.

We had been to Rochers-de-Naye previously when Jenni visited in May, but at that time it was covered in snow and cloud so we were looking forward to some nice clear weather to properly see the view.

In fact it was a perfect day to be up in the mountains, and we could see all the way up Lac Lèman and to the Eiger mountain in the other direction.

We wandered around the top of the hill taking lots of photos of the flowers and views, and had a look in the Jardin Alpin, where we found our first Edelweiss flowers.

Everyone seemed in good sorts in the fine weather and, for no apparent reason, there was a Jazz band playing out on the balcony of the visitor's centre, so we had a musical accompaniment!

As we were leaving it started to rain, and it indeed rain on Sunday. In fact it was pouring for most of the day so we had made a good decision to head out on Saturday. We didn't let the rain stop us from going for a swim in the local pool in Vevey - which we did in the rain, and in the company of one slightly lost duck.

All my photos from our day at Rochers-de-Naye are here.
