Where I stayed
We ended up just north of Boppard, Germany. Our campsite overlooks the Rhine river and the first thing that Kaden, Senn and I did was go for a swim. The water was bracing but once you got in it was very relaxing. Barges ply the water frequently and we watched them go by with all sorts of cargo on board
Both sides of the river also carry roads and railroads so this river valley, as it has for at least two thousand years, is a major transportation artery through Germany.
The river is also lined with vineyards from which the famous Rhine wine is produced. We'll have to try some before we leave.
The evening was spent relaxing and eating another delicious dinner cooked by Lisa. Both hamburgers and fresh Belgian mussels were on the menu this evening. Dinner was accompanied by a selection of Belgian beers. Yummy!
