Feb 19 (Tue)

A storm of people left the hotel and now it’s nice and quiet.
This day again we had nice slow breakfast and went hiking on the hill.

Breakfast @ Poppy Brasserie

On the right side of the hotel (north east of the hotel), there is a path to walk up to other small lakes. Someone at the hotel told us we wouldn’t need snow-shoes to go up there, so we went hiking with regular trekking shoes. It was very cold, especially my face was freezing. I covered the half of my face with my scarf.  When we were walking up the hill, somehow I didn’t cough. I wonder why. My nose was still runny though.

Mirror Lake was also frozen and covered by snow. But it is the lake.

Some birds came to see us , looking for food. We threw away some pieces of apple, and they ate them. Sorry no more food.

Unfortunately we didn’t see any other animals, but it was a great exercise. Only a few people walking and we enjoyed the crisp air and silence of nature.

This is the same Mirror Lake when we visited in summer, 2006.

It was about 2 p.m. when we came back to the hotel. We had lunch again at Chateau Deli.

For dinner, we went to Poppy Brasserie again.
We weren’t too hungry, so we just had 3 appetizers between us.

Chardonnay Wine & Tomato Seafood Chowder

Wild Mushroom & Gruyere Tartlets

Organic Red Quinoa & Zucchini Medallions

Do you know quinoa?
I think this was my first time. I was moved by how delicious it is. We asked the waitress about it and she said it was kind of grain or sprouts. It’s a super food!

The presentations are also very nice and we were impressed by these. Better than main dishes. Thank you for the good food.

Yes, we thought we only had appetizers as we weren’t too hungry… but…
We went to Deli again to get some desserts! It’s open 24h and that’s good! But that’s bad in a way. ^^
These were great. The cream puff had custard and whipped cream with vanilla in it. Oh, satisfactions!!
