Saturday at the Lake

Last Saturday we drove to Lake Albano,
nestled in the hills below Castel Gondolfo.
Lake Albano (Lago Albano or Lago di Castel Gandolfo) is a volcanic crater lake in the Alban Hills of Lazio, 15 miles southeast of Rome. Overlooking it is Castel Gandolfo, which has been the papal summer retreat since the early 1600's. It is also the site of the Vatican observatory.
Lake Albano hosted the canoeing and rowing events of the
1960 Summer Olympic Games that were held at Rome.

Kyack novices and serious fishermen enjoy the lake.
