Today we decided to make use of the local bus and ferry services to explore the northern end of Lake Como. We caught the C10 bus to its final stop, Colico, the northernmost town on the eastern shore of the lake. We had plenty of time to enjoy the lovely square with its fountain and to walk along the promenade. To the north there was an area set aside for water sports. After a picnic by the lake we were able to relax over a cappuccino before catching the slow ferry back to Tremezzo.

The journey back took over two hours but was fantastic. The scenery at the northern end of the lake is very dramatic with the tiny villages backed by high mountains.

It was a perfect day for photography and I took lots of photos as the ferry called in at all the villages.

About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
