Let the boat do the walking today and took a day pass on the Lago Maggiore. Began early when there was hardly anyone out. By mid-afternoon boats had lot.s on them. Great views. Mountains and houses all round the lake. Went to Brissagio first. Found a wonderful little suntrap on seats in a grassed area beside a medieval church. Could have stayed there all day. Went to Botanical Gaardens on Isolo di Brissago - had New Zealand plants there that I have in my garden. Anscona was almost too picture perfect on a warm siesta type afternoon with all the umbrellas out on the restaurants on the waterfront.
