Lake Garda

Lake Garda 2 - Ian got up early and went for a walk - Cassone is a beautiful little place - lots of cobblestones and a great foreshore. the mountains of course are wonderful - so old. 
Lots of platforms like this but the seagulls - (lakegulls?) - seem to like this one - it's locked anyway and i haven't seen anyone using it. 
We have found a wine shop in Malcesine where we are allowed to park any time which is great because the parks are all full. SO of course we are frequenting it. lots of olive oil and balsamic vinegars for us to bring home in our suitcases.
i bought a great fruits of the forest balsamic vinegar - will get an unopened one to take home. 
Last night we had a bbq on our terrace looking over the lake - grilled peppers - made a salad and cooked meat which we had no idea what it was but it was lovely - turned out to be pork. Plus tomatoes and lovely fresh mozzarella and red wine.  
Cassone is really interesting - and there is a great little museum as well  
Little bridge - well worth the wander - we ate at one of the pizzerias on the first night right on the water's edge  
Tody we went exploring a little in Malcesine - lots of people and touristy stuff 
I like these little places
Grant was launching his moth
Then he was off in the distance on his foils to practise. There are over 250 Moths in this regatta - and highly unlikely that we will be able to distinguish anyone. But they look great racing along up on foils.  
Then to end a relaxing day we came home and had a swim - have to watch for the killer stones when you get in and out so just one in and a long swim and then out. And I did my today's little watercolour - day 59 now.

Everywhere looks so picturesque and serene. You have been very clever to make it look as though there were no other tourists there! Love your little watercolours.
