Great Rivers of Europe - 2

Hi, We sailed out of Amsterdam on a beautiful spring afternoon.

Almost immediately after departing we encountered this small coastal freighter.

A short time later we passed this shipyard with some kind of patrol boat in dry dock.

Along the way were many bucolic scenes which could be photographed from the sundeck.

We arrived in Cologne, Germany under cloudy skies late the next afternoon.

As we exited the ship for a walk around town a light intermittent rain began to fall.  We walked up to the main square in town (above and three below) where we encountered the statues above.  Our guide referred to them as the local Laurel and Hardy.

At the entrance to a small arcade near the town's cathedral this small combo was playing.

After our walk our guide treated us to a glass of the local beer (above and below).

Thanks for looking.
