A Dream Fulfilled

Before we left Geneva for Argeles-sur-mer, Scooby Two got to fulfill a lifelong dream. (Hey, it hasn't been that long a life, but nonetheless ...) -- he got to see the famous Jet D'Eau fountain at Lac Leman.

SD2 encouraged us to walk all the way out to the end of the concrete pier where the Jet D'Eau spews 132 gallons of water per second at a speed of 200 kilometres per hour to a height of more than 450 feet. We managed to not get soaked. (Along the way, we heard at least seven different languages spoken by other visitors ... none of them 'dog' or 'cartoon.')
From there we went to the American Food Avenue, and stocked up on Orville Redenbacher Cheddar Popcorn, Chewy Chips Ahoy, molasses, and other goodies we cannot get in the south of France.
Of course, before we left Switzerland, 'Two' made sure he stopped and smelled the roses. (Can you see the bee under the blossom?)
