Rolle is a municipality in the Canton of Vaud in Switzerland. It was the seat of the district of Rolle until 2006, when it became part of the district of Nyon. It is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) between Nyon andLausanne. Rolle is approximately 30 kilometers (19 mi) northeast of Geneva (Genève) in the La Côte wine-growing region, and commands spectacular views of the high Alps.[3]

Rolle is also the birthplace of Frédéric-César de la Harpe (1754–1838), who was the tutor of Alexander I of Russia and was largely responsible for the independence of the Canton of Vaud from the Bernese. (Source Wikipedia)

One of our fortunate days weatherwise blessed us on the visit to Rolle. Rolle being on the shore of Lac Léman offers the photographer a host of nice possibilities, so I will let the potos do most of the talking.

Discovered this morning it is D-day minus 9 before we return home and I do hope that the weather will give us a true Spring time during this final week.  More pics on Rolle to follow.  Enjoy a blessed day.
