The bus came dad picked me up and on we went. The bus was nice and cool, I rested on dads lap under the air con. Poppys like air con. We got off bus at Cannobio It was hot. Lets go to the water mum can we? At the Boat stop was an amazing slope. At the bottom it was flat and the water only came half way up my legs. I chased the white horses up and down it was great.

Across the square mum got an ice cream after I met one one of my Swiss cousins, I was not too sure of him. I don’t speak Swiss.

why the plastic bottles

Dad wanted to buy a bottle of wine so back to the square. Dad bought a huge bottle of wine. It was heavy. In stead of going back to the bus stop we went to the boat stop. I liked it because I could play in the lake again. All good things, I had to get out because the boat was coming in.

We got a good seat on the boat. The boat did not go where mum and dad thought it would. First it went to Maccagno then it went to Luino. Eventually it crossed back to our side of the lake we got a good view of the castle.
