Pleasant Lunch By The Lake
July 26, 2017 7:22am CST
A cold wind from north has blown during two nights in a row, bringing the temperature down. Today is a sunny day with a clear blue sky and a pleasant temperature. It was a shame to stay at home, my husband invited me to have lunch in a small restaurant overlooking the lake of Lugano. It's a small family restaurants with a limited menu for lunch, but it's very quiet and with a pleasant view. We ate perch fish fillets roasted in butter with sage leaves and served with rösti (sort of potato fritters). Here is a photo of the view from our table. How is your Wednesday so far?

A lovely place to dine and a beautiful peaceful view of the lake there Anna. Glad you had this time together in a nice place. The meal sounds delicious. Wednesday so far is nervous for me, I have an important meeting today.

Here in Genova, it continues to be hot. I would hope just for a week of rain, to decrease the temp. about 10 °C! But nothing to do! Weather forecasts (vedere meteo.it) sometimes foresee thunderstorms, but at least from my part, nothing! But when they announce torrential days, well, they never make a mistake! However, for August, there is not much time left. Usually after "Ferragosto" (15th) the temperature will obviously drop off. And I hope so. As I told you in a previous post, now I begin to "hate" the summer! How I spent my Wednesday? To the beach.
We had no torrential rains or thunderstorm, it's the cold wind from the north that has cooled down the temperature, more than 10º C. Up in Geneva and Zürich they had torrential rains and flooding. After mid August is never too hot, the days are short, at 8 PM it's already dark. Enjoy the beach Alessandro.

@LadyDuck Yes, maybe I do not exclude that heat could remains also after the middle of August, but note a significant drop in the temperatures here. Even in my part, the days then begin to shorten. For example, now it is bright until 9.00 PM about. Then slowly begins to fade in dark ever before. Not to mention that, in Italy, on the last Sunday in October, summer-time will be removed. The "lancets", pull one hour back for the whole winter season. Then about 5.00 PM, it starts to darken.
Wow, what a beautiful view of a lake , so placid and with its surroundings so nice and fresh to the eyes. It is a bit sunny, but I know the weather is still cool. How romantic of your hubby to bring you to a restaurant with this beautiful view. Did you take it from a higher place , like a veranda on the second floor?
@DaddyEvil Catholics celebrate 1 Saint for every day of the year and when it is the saint corresponding to your name, you celebrate, as you do for your birthday. My name is Anna and yesterday it was the day of the Sant'Anna (Saint Anne).

What a beautiful place to have lunch. I love the view and what you ate, too! You know how much I loved Switzerland!! It is a glorious day here, too. I walked 6 miles with my friends and just finished sipping coffee on our patio. I will shower and go for a facial and massage at the spa in a few minutes with a friend, then for a quick bite to eat.
