In spite of what the weatherman has announced, we had a beautiful and sunny Easter. We received my family to have the Easter lunch together. In the afternoon, we all decided to cross the border and go for a walk on the shores of the lake of Como. It only took fifteen minutes from our home, to reach our destination and we have spent a pleasant afternoon. I took some photos to share with you. Alfredo (@amadeo), if you plan to visit, here it is how the lake of Como looks alike. Today is grey and it rains, a day to stay at home. How has been your Easter?

Our weather is brightening up a little now, but I have no intention of visiting any lakes today.

I am not going out today, I was even tempted not to dress, but you never know if someone has the bad idea to knock at your door.

@LadyDuck Not getting dressed would definitely tempt them to knock on the door.

@Asylum This is what I thought, usually during this time of the year we risk a visit of Jehovah Witness, they have the ability to choose the worst moment of the day to ring at your door.

Do you need a passport to cross the border. Was it just a stroll or did you stop for coffee somewhere.

No we do not need a passport, the ID is enough, but we have to stop and show our ID. We stopped at a cafe to have an ice cream.

What a beautiful view! My easter was okay, I went to see a friend who was in the hospital. The weather was a bit dreary but I do not mind that at all. I came home and had ham, pinto beans and mashed potatoes. It was delicious.

Yesterday was a wonderful spring day and today it seems to be back in winter. Dark, rainy and cold.

@LadyDuck Our world's weather is crazy. Spring is here but at times you don't think so as it gets cold. Some parts of the states have had snow even now!

@ScribbledAdNauseum We had the craziest winter in 135 years, no rain, no snow and no cold. I do not know what to expect for spring.

Thank you, I am glad you like the photos. My niece wanted an ice cream, everything was closed here in our small village, so we decided to cross the border.

@TiarasOceanView I even speak the same dialect they speak in this part of Switzerland. Once upon a time this area was part of Italy, we lost it.

it was gloomy last Good Friday but this Easter Sunday, the sun rose and shone its bright happy rays. Now, the cold temperature is back again; and we thought it is already summer here?

Thank you James. I cropped every single photo and copied the crop into a "blank" picture and finally saved the four frames as a single photo.

It was rainy here in Oregon, and cool as well. Starting today, we are suppose to have sunny weather all week, although, it is very cloudy right now, but it was sunny earlier. I am hoping the sun comes back again, as we just haven't seen it that much lately at all

This lake is in my native country (Italy), but it's so close to Switzerland, the landscape is almost identical.
