Yesterday saw a short walk full of good things from mount pèlerin to villeneuve.

There was rain for the flowers.

   A boat passed 3,4, 5 times on the walk by the lake, called Italie with flags for France and Switzerland on either side.

Coming around the corner on Le Quai de Fluers, Jazz sounds floated over the water. The Montreaux Jazz festival was in full swing!

It happened to pass right over no. 70 Suisse - the via Francigena route! I met another pilgrim.

We listened to Kora music from Senegal.

And then I heard an American girl playing on guitar  one of my favorite songs to sing walking - “Riptide” by Vance Joy. 

My favorite part to belt out walking through cornfields and trees for hours alone has been “All my friends are turning green”.

The water along the lake was so beautiful after the rain, I jumped in to swim again before reaching the end of the lake at Villeneuve. 

From my friend I learned the English words for the sign with the duck cartoon along the lake - “I would like to swim in happiness”.
