|Golden Pass train for Montreux arriving at Montbovon|
I had a leisurely journey via Fribourg, Romont, Bulle and Montbovon to Montreux. The weather was fine and the journey through pleasant countryside - including the drop down into Montreux itself. The walk to the apartment is not very long but it was hot and I was carrying my bag.
We discussed a place for Mary's birthday lunch and took the funicular up to Glion where there is a good restaurant right above the Rocher de Naye (rack) railway station station. We had a pleasant table with a good view for a boozy lunch. The hunting season is now open and we both had venison, proceeded by Aigle tomatoes and washed down with an Aigle Pinot Noir.
|Chateau de Chillon from Glion|
The funicular is very convenient to get to Glion and the trolley bus takes us right to the bottom station.
Every so often we hear a steam whistle and one of the lake paddle steamers comes in to dock at Montreux.
