Today is a relaxing day.  We spend the morning hanging out at the campsite just relaxing and doing various things, such as cooking the rice for dinner tonight, sorting through our stuff and working on our diaries.  After lunch at the campsite, we decide to go for a walk to a nearby fancy hotel.

It is in a beautiful location at the end of the lake with a view of the towers.  We sit in the lobby lounge and have a drink while taking in the view.  We also take advantage of the time to work on our journal.  Lars also taps into their wiring to get some juice for his laptop.  We spend a bit over two hours there.

 

We get back to the camp site around 5 PM and begin to prepare dinner.  We make something simple - fried rice.  As we have been camping for a while, we could not have fresh meat, so it is a veggie version.  We also prepare a soup for people to start with.

After cleaning up the mess we created over dinner, we hang out by the fire and open another bottle of wine.  We also decide to get out the real marshmallows that we had found and roast some of them over the fire - yummy!!!
