Friday, 11 August, 2017 – weather: Grey and Rainy
For those of you that wanted more details about the special Rudisheimer coffee of yesterday:
We get up and face another ugly looking day weatherwise. It is just grey but alternates between grey and rainy all day. There is a scheduled Oktoberfest on today but my enthusiasm is getting watered down, again pun intended.
After breakfast, we hang around in the lounge. After 11:00 we have a Zither concert by Tomy-the-Great.
As we proceed down the Main, I take a number of photos, here are some.
Miltenberg is the jump off point for all of those going to the Oktoberfest. It has been described to us as beer, bratwurst and entertainment. Julie does not like sausages and does not drink beer, often anyway. I can’t drink beer because it cases me pain. Plus it is raining. So it was an easy decision to stay on the boat. However, there is time for a short prance for Julie. Some photos.
After everyone leaves, lunch was put on in the River Café. We had some quite satisfying fish and chips. I take some photos about our progress up the river including a sequence on the Lock action.
Relatively early to bed tonight/
