Yoga on the sundeck again!!  LOVE it!  Grabbed bikes after breakfast, John, R and I while Lanett did the walk along the river to Durnstein - cobble stone streets, ever corner a picture.  Nice gentle ride then back to the boat for a wacky mini train ride to the Domane Wachau vineyard.  I volunteered John to be the 'follow up guy' cuz they asked who was the fittest - LOL.  Great cellars way down deep in the hill.  Super tasting and John even got a free 1/2 bottle! Chatted with young dentist couple traveling with her parents - poor kids with all these oldies but they were having fun.   Purchased 2 bottles to bring home and 2 memory glasses. 
Back on the boat for just a superb sail up the Danube to another small town of Melk. 
Hopped on buses up to the incredible Abbey - wonderful young guide - awesome exhibit going from blue (water) to green (growth) in lighting the story of the Benedictine monks and then oh the views!!  another amazing library and a stroll down the hill back to the boat with a stop for wine and beer at a sidewalk cafe. 
Another fabulous day, setting sail for Salzburg in the evening.
