... the picture taken (could be the same table!) and a nice couple took several photos of us there. Mission accomplished!
We had hoped to go from there to the summit of Schilthorn, but just enough clouds moved in to envelop the peak, so we saved that for another day. Instead, we took a cable car down to Grimmelwald, a town even smaller than Murren, and explored there, and a final car down to the valley floor.

We had lunch, bought Swiss watches and knives, trinkets from Switzerland ...

Lovin Murren...hope the weather will hold...pray hard!
Love ya all,
