A few days before I returned home from France, I was in Geneva one more time with my sister to take a short, 2-hour cruise on Lake Geneva. It was perfect weather…warm and sunny with gorgeous big fluffy clouds. It was lovely.
The paddlewheeler “Savoie” entering Geneva harbour.
And churning across the harbour to pick up passengers. These elegant paddlewheelers are a common sight all around the lake, carrying passengers on sightseeing cruises.
These little yellow boats are called mouettes, and they are waterbuses, part of Geneva’s extensive public transit system, ferrying people from one side of the harbour to the other.
The second image shows a mouette about to pass under the pont de Mont Blanc, where the lake empties into the Rhone River.
