Luzern Day 3

Originally uploaded by rajmarshall
Day 3 was fairly gentle - cable car up to the Trübsee and a walk down. The day belonged to the flowers - and I've added a few to the holiday flickr set. Engleberg is probably not good at a weekend and we did this walk on a Sunday, queues for the cable car - we were amused at how the leader of a group came in the cable car with us rather than his group in order to take a break. The Trübsee station is a bit of a building site at the moment but once away from it peace descended and we followed the Alpine flower route, a steep descent and then to a nicely placed restaurant for some Apfel Torte! Unfortunately the end of the walk was marred by a bike race which prevented us using the walk we wanted.
Delightful dinner at the Hotel Engelberg, I had the fixed price menu - real Swiss hospitality and food, a group then arrived in national dress for their own dinner - between courses they went into the street and sang something appropriately Swiss! (see set for photo!)
(need identification for the flower photo!)
