Les Scènes du Week-end {15} {OK, we skipped number 14, but who's counting?}

The first weekend of summer?
It was pretty great.

Saturday involved home-made smoothies, 
a trip to the marché
{even more exciting than it sounds!}

Sunday meant a hike to a beautiful lake near Chamonix,
a picnic lunch,
amazing views of Mont Blanc
& a relaxing afternoon at the thermal baths.

Summer 2011, 
I have a good feeling about you.

blueberries + raspberries + banana + OJ + yogurt + fancy new blender = YUM

sunhats at the market

waiting in line to buy baguette
scenery at the start of our hike Sunday morning

Mont Blanc + field + blue skies = swoon

colourful bee hives we saw on the way up to the lake

our destination, Le Lac Vert, with Mont Blanc in the background

seeing this snake swimming in the lake was pretty exciting

Donkeys + chalets + mountains?  Yes please.

The thermal baths where we soaked for a couple hours after our hike.


  1. Those donkeys are sensible animals. They are grazing in the shade. What a lovely hike you had!

  2. Looks like you had a fabulous weekend! Parts of it sound familiar to mine! I also got a loaf of bread at the marche!

  3. jazz concert and fireworks? Two of my very favorite things in the whole wide world!

  4. Not sure I would use the word "exciting" to describe a snake swimming in the lake! More like horrifying? Terrifying? Scream-inducing?

    Otherwise am loving all your weekend photos. What a beautiful part of the world you live in. If only it were closer to the part where I live! Then we could wander the market together, hang out at the sidewalk cafes, climb every mountain... {how do you make a musical note symbol with the keyboard, I wonder?} ;~)

    Love you.

  5. Great scenes of summer! Well, except for the snake! Love your photos...

  6. I am more of a lurker than a poster, but I had to voice my disapproval of the snake. In all other respects, I love your blog life, Em.
