A swan patrols Lac d'Annecy's Rive GaucheA bicyclist pauses on the shore of Lac d’Annecy this morning as I walked a 3-mile circuit on the lake’s western shore, also known as the ‘Rive Gauche’ hereabouts. A pair of the lake’s celebrated swans or cygnes cruised by, and one of them agreed to pose picturesquely in the reeds (no doubt in the employ of the Annecy Chambre de Commerce).

Trainer Heidi extracted a promise from me that I wouldn’t take a vacation from exercise on this trip: Ms. Hubbard, Heidi’s proxy enforcer, dragged me screaming from the sheets this morning, yesterday’s 14+ hour journey being no cause for mercy in her mind. A breakfast of French yogurt, croissants and coffee was pretty good bait, though…
