Day 6 - 6th August.

We decided to last night to have the last day to ourselves in Mayrhofen.

We got up at 7.35 today because we were doing our own thing and not do the optional tour so we were going shopping and the cable car but which side of the mountain we are not sure atm. The weather is dry and already warm and only just 8am. As we went out the hotel at 9am it was very hot so went back in to change into a sun vest. We wandered round the town and I just happened to land on a craft shop so bought some papers with the mountains on and ribbons and chipboard and wooden pieces for the layouts I would eventually do. The assistant gave me some ribbon as there wasnt enough to sell and its gorgous. Around 11.30 we decided to go up the right side of the mountain (yellow cable cars) so off we went camcorder in hand mun recorded all the way up to 1800m up. When we got there we noticed there was ski lifts to go higher so had a wonder and went on those it was great fun the views were awesome this took us to just over 2000m. when we got off there was a nice pool as we walked round there were millions of frog spawn and the views into the valleys was speechless. We had a cup of coffee which was really good and then carried on walking as I heard the cows and I had to get photos of my cows lol so we walked a few miles to find these cows and then went further there was loads of walking and cycle paths up there. This was where the paraguiders took off too. When we came down to the first stop we decided we would try the Ice cream up the mountain so stopped at this restaurent we had a table outside overlooking the mountains we chose a ice cream and when it came oh boy what did we choose in the glass was 3 apricots, plums, red berries, blueberries, black berries, strawberrys, peaches, 3 different types of ice cream 2 different types of cream a flake and 3 wafers wow but oh boy it was gorgous.

After a little wander round this section we decided to make the transit back down to the main street and I took the film all the way down the skys were busier then heathrow with all the paraguilders. We then decided to have a ride on the local choo choo round the town itself as alot of it we hadnt seen. It had been a fantasic day. Dinner was early today 5.45 as it was the farmers meal (buffet style) We packed our cases in the meantime early so no worries later. After diiner and drinks we went up to the balcony till 9.30 where we watched the street life and listened to the music entertainment below us and generally just talked.

Below are some photos from Mayrhofen.
