11:40 Went to Rigi hotel restaurant and ordered brunch. Chicken schnitzel, french fries, and vegetables. It was self-served. CHF 18.50.
The food was pretty good, especially for the price since this was at a tourist destination.

12:07 We ate outside, but since we had to wait for the next train for 1 hour we decided to go inside. It was much warmer and we both felt drowsy.

13:50 Ferry. The view was great. It was a little chilly though. My daypack strap got stuck in a bench and I panicked for a few minutes trying to get it out.

15:30 Started walking around. We walked through a chapel bridge that had flowers on the sides and art works on the ceiling. It was romantic.
