Today has been wet and cold in Bromborough, my radiators are all draped in holiday laundry I'm trying to get dry, and there was a power failure on the railways too... Despite all this I have been to confirm a booking at Hesketh Hall in Port Sunlight for David's 18th birthday, visited the bank to pay in a cheque, shopped at Aldi, went to see Kathryn and dreamed of warmer climes making a couple of Italian inspired cards.

Continuing in that vein I will post some pictures of the Borromean Islands which we visited on our first full day in Stresa...


The Beautiful gardens of Isola Bella and the magnificent white peacocks














The narrow streets of the little fisherman's island












A very strange tree!


Our hotel bedroom made up for the evening!!

Those are incredibly beautiful photos, I can hardly take them in just now.

Thanks. And thanks for the lovely postcard. That was lovely.

Isola Bella in particular is fairy tale pretty, like a different world.

Glad the postcard arrived safely.

Beautiful! Especially the peacock!! I know I've been to one of the islands - I think it must have been the formal garden one as I don't remember any fishermen's cottages - but it was way back in 1969 on our honeymoon so maybe I can be excused for my lapse of memory!

If you were only visiting one island it would almost certainly be Isola Bella, it's outstanding! I certainly can't remember much from 1969!! - so you're excused!!!
