A slice of Annatorte (what else!) from the Imperial and Royal Confectionary Baker (The Demel, as it goes around here) to start the day.

 An afternoon of summer tobogganing with friends.

Top speeds of 40km per hour!  Whee!

Dinner in the Inner Stadt with a best friend. Oh, no!  Ominous skies at Zu den Neun Chören der Engel (The Nine Choirs of Angels). Would the grand fiaker finale be rained out?

The skies above Am Hof and Peterskirche certainly did not look promising.  We settled in for dinner and hoped for the best.

 Hurrah!  Blue skies.  Two very excited young ladies lead the way to Michaelerplatz…

 …where the many horse carriages waited to tour them around Vienna.

 Waving to the traffic jam behind the carriage. (157 friendly people waved back along the ride.)

Happy Birthday, Anna Grace!
