Monday September 17 - Chateau de Chatelard

Chatelard Halt
Today we took the train to Chatelard. It took only four minutes but was all very much uphill. From here there is a wonderful view over Montreux, Vevey and the lake. The sun was very hot indeed. 
The Chateau de Chatelard is set on a small hill above its vineyards

Another chateau can be seen in the distance.
We watched two paddle steamers pass near Clarens. The Italie on the right and La Suisse on the left.
This is such a beautiful peaceful spot, as the crow flies it is very close to our apartment.
As we walked down the hill I found this sweet pea growing wild
We took a trolley bus into La Tour de Pelitz and found a very good restaurant for pizza then another trolley bus back to Montreux to book tickets for a cruise on the lake tomorrow.

While we were buying tickets for tomorrow La Suisse came in briefly. The paddle steamers seem to run with a great deal of precision.
