Lake Garda

The next leg of our trip was spent at Lake Garda. We stayed at hotel Catullo with a great view of the lake. The first photo is looking out our window. The evening shot is from the terrace on our floor. Every single time we walked out on the terrace, Lily perfected her other new vacation word - "Wow" (pronounced more like WOOOOW). Very cute. You can see from the beach shot all of the beautiful mountains around the lake. Also of the aggressive swans. The one chased the other all over the beach. They were walking right across sun bathers!

Coming into the city you wonder if you are heading the right direction. Primarily traveresed by pedestrians, cars come and go amidst the throng of people with stop lights that direct when it is your turn to head in, vs. another car to head out. The old stone bridges and arches are barely wide enough for one car!

Our first dinner we ate outside at a hotel right next to ours. There were about 6 kittens running around which kept Lily entertained. We had a fantastic pizza with black truffles, then strolled around the brick streets where Lily made new friends and Lily (and her dad) played with the string display. [July 7, 2007]
