Day 10-Sunday, Oct 2~Regensburg, Germany-Ump Pa Pa

(Be sure to click on an individual picture for a larger view and sometimes, commentary.)

I awoke to see the gray cement wall outside my window that can only mean we have entered yet another lock. The middle picture shows that the boat is rising as water is released into the lock. The third picture shows the water level high enough for us to move on our way.

We walked into Regensburg and stopped to study the Gothic features of St. Peter’s Cathedral. The bells soon summoned worshippers on this Sunday morning. Note the left side where St. Peter, the patron saint and keeper of the keys, is represented by a keyhole rather than a cross.

Regensburg was spared from bombing in WWII because the Allied Forces were focused on the oil refinery and airplane factory.

After a bit of window shopping, we stopped at a recommended spot for lunch. Here is Norm’s post about that.

Regenburg’s famous sausages with sauerkraut and sweet mustard.

After a rest and a presentation about WWII, all 140 of us walked to Alta Linde’s for wienerschnitzel, beer, and a wonderful German band.

Walked back to the ship and slept well!

Ciao for now!
