Lights! Snow! Wow!

Yesterday was a bit of a disaster, right?

But it ended up on a much better note than it started.

Before dinner, it actually stopped snowing.
FQ & I decided to make the most of of the quiet streets, 
the cold, clear evening
& the piles of snow everywhere.  

We walked down to the lake & along the water to the old town.

After a few minutes of admiring the Christmas lights
& the snow on the rooftops, 
we were about to head home.

When suddenly, what to our wondering eyes should appear,
but an amazing sound & light show 
projected onto Annecy's Hôtel de Ville (City Hall).  
It went on for about 15 minutes & was incredible.
I'd never seen anything quite like it.  

I have a feeling we'll be wandering down there quite a few times over the next few weeks.


  1. Just wow ! Lucky you !


  2. WOW. I wasn't expecting anything as amazing as that! Some twinkly lights with a bit of background music maybe. But that? That is spectacular!!!

  3. That is amazing! What a great thing to stumble upon.

  4. That is incredible and fascinating! And how amazing that you just happened upon it by accident too - what a find!
