We rushed out after breakfast this morning to take a bus to Interlaken, where the group would split for the day. The first thing we did there was see a chocolate making demonstration. It was quite fun to watch and learn all about chocolate making but, best of all, we got to do some tasting too! I discovered, as I suspected, that 100% dark chocolate isn’t really my thing, but I had to wash it down with some milk chocolate so that was absolutely terrible!
After both groups got to see that, we took the bus a little farther and dropped off the girls and leaders going white-water rafting. The rest of us continued on to a set of waterfalls set into a mountain. We quickly ate our lunch before going exploring. It was absolutely beautiful to watch how powerful the water was!
Then we returned to the main part of the city and did a bit of shopping (and ice cream eating) while waiting for the rafters.
When we got back to Our Chalet, we had a tasty dinner of saucy chicken and potatoes. 4 of our girls were really hoping for nice weather tonight so they could go on an overnight hike, but it was unfortunately cancelled due to thunderstorms. On the other hand, the twilight hike was still on. As it turned out, none of the girls wanted to go, but Caralyn and I went along with 3 volunteers and 4 people from other groups. What started out as a 1-1.5 hour hike ended up taking close to 3 hours, but it was worth every minute of it! The view was great even with the fog and we learned some lovely songs that we sang in rounds as we hiked.
