We had the great pleasure of spending a day in this beautiful city this past Saturday before retiring to a hotel in Lausanne that night. Sunday was spent enjoying the lake in Lausanne.
Morges Castle was built in 1286 and houses the Vaud Military Museum, the Artillery Museum, the Museum of Historic Pewter Figures as well as the Museum of the Vaud Gendarmerie.
The courtyard of the castle was full of flowers.
My first impression of the lake was how calm it was in spite of the large number of boats and people.
The walkway was packed even if the temperature outside was incredibly hot.
The lake was picturesque no matter which direction you looked.
As I ate my ice cream quickly since it was melting fast, I stood observing this man fishing framed by flowers and mountains.
The lake was busy with boats and rafts.
Not only were boats in the water but people were swimming all along the edge.
A large boat that Vilay said looked like it was Chinese sat in the water like out of a movie.
The park was full of people grilling out, playing and laying in the sun and shade.
There was so much activity along the lake and so many beautiful moments to capture on camera that I could spend a life time happily recording it all.

Morges has a very interesting and rich history.
