May 28: Zernez morning 2

Another fine alpine morning, another full day of exploration planned.

Lookin' crisp out there.

The grand strawberry-flavored dining room of the Bär & Post —

— where the breakfast was exquisite. That's Caotina Noir dark-chocolate hot chocolate. I can heartily recommend the Bär & Post on the strength of the breakfast alone, although the rest of the experience was highly enjoyable as well.

A grand view from a grand room.

A most refined of sun reflections.

Rolling out to start the day's travels, I of course set out toward the train station, passing through the central square again along the way. I think the mountain behind the Hotel Piz Terza is Piz Terza itself.

Greens near and far. Is this hedge made of parsley?

All right, fine. Here's a little bit more of San Antonius.

A block of well old houses that must have survived the 1872 fire that consumed most of Zernez (but spared e.g. the parish church and Chastè Wildenberg).

A bit of sky-partitioning via power lines. The warning sign looks like a little dude hanging on for dear life.

At the station, a maintenance shop, it seems, with an interesting window composition.

Further beyond the tracks, this looks rather like a fire station, given the large red vehicles and doors, but I'm not sure. For one thing, why would it be across the train tracks from almost all other buildings in town.
