We were welcomed to Hohen Chiemsee today by some absolutely beautiful weather! I can't say that Mother Nature hasn't been good to us. We took a boat there, crossing the lake and seeing all the sailboats and settlements along the way. Of course, a lake wouldn't be complete without fish! Just from the dock area we could see a few good 10 pounders just swimming around and minding their own business.
We had lunch at the castle, too... bratwurst and saurerkraut. It wasn't the thick juicy bratwurst that we had wanted, but it did the trick. Unfortunately we were also victim to the rude behaviour of tourists -- we don't act this way, but many tourists are pushy and self-oriented. It's a shame... but what happened was people kept on budding in line, and of ocurse by the time we were done in the line our food was cold. Maybe it's because we're Canadian, I don't know, but decency should be something you can count on. KP and I opted out of dessert this time, in an effort to be healthy.
We also stopped to see the deer at the deer park! But you know how KP and I didn't get dessert? This effort was in vain, as on the way home we stopped by a bakery and got 6 pastries. Admittedly we didn't finish them all and it was amongst four people, but still. The idea was ruined! But it wasn't all for nothing, as the excess sweetness was sure to make us not crave desserts for a long while to come.
