A drive around Lac Annecy was in order before lunch with a drive to the Col ...

... the service was horrible. The two waitresses just couldn't handle the packed restaurant and were running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Finally we got our meal and then got out of there. By the time we got back to the hotel, the concert was in full swing.
