Started the day at the street market in the old town. It began right outside our door. The first trip to the market was very early, just as people were setting up (took some pictures). The second trip involved some serious shopping for our hike picnic (sausage, croissants and cherries - we already had the cheese) and for dinner ( roti chicken, veggies and a torte chocolate) - but no photos!

The bus was running today so we headed down the east side of the lake to Echarvines and hiked to the Roc de Chere for our picnic overlooking the lake. Running out of superlatives, so we'll let the pictures tell the story. Coffee overlooking a golf course!! and the as we waited for the return bus we watched an amazing hang glider show. Will try to post some pictures but once again - there had to be 100+ in the air at one time and not sure if the photos will do this justice. Also have some short video we can share later - but the blog doesn't support videos!

Back to Annecy on the bus and took a few pictures of where we are staying. The building is right below the Castle (next to the flags). We climb 56 steps up the circular staircase and have a nice garden view. Amazingly even when the street in front of the building is packed with people - it's quite up here with the widows open. All this for about $75/night!

We wanted to prove we are really here and not downloading stock web pics!

Hopefully if you look at this on a computer the resolution will let you see how many are in the air!
