Borovoe Day 3 - Walking by the Lake

Saturday, 25 June, 2011

Today we all slept in and left late. We had promised the girls the beach (swimming by the lake side) but the weather forecast was light rain all day. So we walked through the town to the park and then walked by the lake side. There is a small paved walkway going around the lake, and many people were walking or riding bikes. The girls loved to run off the walkway and through the trees, or climb rocks by the lake. We had plenty of fun taking their pictures.

The lake is so beautiful, large, and round and surrounded by mountains. Granite rocks are everywhere, plenty of places to scramble up. Sophia caught a butterfly and later a large caterpillar, making her quite happy.

We spent several hours on our walk; afterwards we ate and looked in various shops. And maybe tomorrow the weather will let us go swimming.
