~estavayer le lac~

Across the lake from our canton and town of Neuchatel, is the canton of Fribourg and the town of Estavayer le Lac. We’ve long coveted their golden late afternoon light, and so we finally toodled over to see if the real town lived up to our fantasy. It was pretty lovely: charming architecture, live Bossa Nova in the main square at sunset, wine drinkin kitties. It was rather the Bizarro World of Neuchatel.

We scurried home for a 10pm market pasta (composed of things only from the farmer’s market) prepared by Manfred, and strawberry and rhubarb to finish, which was even more delish than the ripe and dangling cherries that gleamed from endless trees and taunted Stefan along our journey.
