    Yum!

    Behind the musicians, lining the lake, were several tables selling food. I had some raclette and Bob had wurst. Delicious!

    Raclette is melted cheese, served over boiled potatoes with lots of ground black pepper, accompanied by small pickled onions and gherkins.

    The name comes from the French verb "racler", to scrape, because of the way the melted cheese is scraped off the block. Just watching the the raclette machine in action was entertainment. (yes, I'm easily amused.)

    After the sheep did their thing, and were happily mingling amongst us, music began. Different groups played all day- non-stop.

    the Alphorn Grichting

    Local white wine

    Glad we noticed!

    After the sheep hoopla, everyone settled down to listen to music; eat, drink, and be merry. We noticed the merriest were the ones drinking wine. Turns out it was being sold at a nearby table. Of course we bought a bottle. 12 CHF . Little plastic cups were provided too. Delicious! A red wine was sold too, but since we noticed 90% of the people were going with the white, we figured they knew best!
