This is so relaxing!
We got up and met Amy and Kev for breakfast at 9:00.
Then we sat in the cozy lobby for a while, pondering the trail map for this area, which is called the Val Rendena.
Kev’s knees wouldn’t want to hike so just three of us went. Destination Lago Nambino:

We again saw incredible displays of wild flowers, in meadows and on the trail:

We paused at this spot with a view of Madonna di Campiglio below:

It took us about an hour, full of great conversations, to reach the Lake and rifugio. It was a funny place—a mountain resort, kind of. There was a full restaurant, red canvas chairs for rent for 2 euros, a rectangular, cement trout pond full of fish and a bocce court:

We came back to the hotel and just took it easy for a while. Hung out with Amy and Kev a bunch.
Dinner was here in their more rustic downstairs room. The food was really nice but not really noteworthy==Ken and I both had pork. I love the polenta with the buckwheat in it. Maybe I can bring some home. We tried a local Marzemino red wine we really loved though.
