One of the many things I like about river boating (this was my second trip) is watching the world pass by. On Friday March 30th the morning was spent enroute to our next stop. I decided to use the time to walk the track on the deck and watch the scenery. I think I walked for more than an hour.
Take a look at the sights with me. You can click on them to see them enlarged.
Here's the deck with the walking path.
Lots of different ships going the opposite direction.
I could see people on the shore enjoying the holiday (Good Friday).
Even campers in the cold Spring weather.
Dan used the time to do some journaling.
Mistletoe, I think. There were other trees with even more on other days.
Distance markers along the shore line. Not sure if they were in miles or kilometers. I think the other sign shows a water skier.
An industrial area ahead.
Ever heard of BASF? Its a huge chemical manufacturer. The plant we sailed by is the biggest one in the world.
It's a city in itself.
This is where we docked. Buses then took us to Heidelberg or Speyer. There was no traffic since it was a holiday and everything was closed as I soon discovered in Speyer.
