“We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.” ~ Katie Thurmes

Today the weather and I seemed to be uncannily in sync. The morning was foggy and rainy and the afternoon was sunny, bright and beautiful.

After our first on board breakfast, we boarded a canal cruise boat in the soaking rain for an informative trip. Although the weather was not cooperative, the trip was informative and of course a lovely photo opportunity. It may be picturesque but I personally do not think I could ever live on a riverboat.

There are times when both bicycle and car look like they are about to topple into the canal. The guides say that they dredge the canals often and find bicycles, cars and the occasional Englishman!

We returned to our ship and after a delicious lunch set sail for Cologne, Germany. Sitting on the deck of the ship with drink, friends and camera was a peaceful and very delightful way to spend the afternoon thanks to good weather and of course, good company.

After a picture perfect afternoon it was finally time for the real fun to begin! Tonight at the “Fascinators and Bow Ties” cocktail hour we began our on board celebration officially for our hosts David and Thierry.

Later we once again wined and dined, this evening in the private and appropriately named wine room.
