We were all happy to wake up to sunshine today - the weather report said it would be nice - but you never know in the mountains.  Today was a full day, but not much for me to actually say we started out with a nice breakfast of Austrian meats and cheeses - fruits - bread.  We then headed out for a walk through the village to the main waterfall.  We admired the waterfall and were just about to start our climb to the top - but we thought the sunshine looked very inviting at this little cafe and since it was a bit cool - we thought it would help get us ready for our climb.  We took on some nourishment in the form of beer and sekt and enjoyed the nice warm sunshine.  Then we hiked up the waterfall and made our way up to the entrance of the village up the hill.  There is a nice market up there so we stocked up on some 'provisions' and then we hiked back down and decided that we should go back to the little café for some more beer and sekt.  We shared a couple simple pizzas and that took care of the hunger pains until dinnertime.  We were all feeling the mountain air and were a bit tired so we stayed in and had dinner - which was actually a little smorgasbord in our apartment. We got in a few good rounds of Scrabble and all of this was accompanied by pre-recorded Fox News on the television for Jim.  A very nice day!
