“At last my love has come along. My lonely days are over and life is like a song.” ~Etta James

Today was a spectacular, picturesque, eye-catching,  breathtaking,   amazing and downright glorious day. The sun was shining and the weather was a flawless Kodak moment for our leisurely cruise down the Rhine Gorge, where there is a castle or winery or a quaint village around every bend in the river. The second but more important event was the marriage celebration of our friends/family Dave and Thierry Natale.

The Rhine Gorge is a popular name for the sixty five km section of the Rhine between Koblenz and Bingen in Germany. The gorge was formed long ago and the river is contained within steep walls, the most famous being the Lorely. The region is known for its ts wines on the south facing slopes. It was an important trade route and many settlements grew up and still remain, including the ruins of castles from the Holy Roman Empire. Our cruise was incredible as the pictures will show.

There is a photo opportunity around every corner.

Of course there were many other sights on the deck of the ship today, as my daughter Becca would say “some things can not be unseen.”

There was a lovely celebration of the wedding of David and Thierry our dear friends and family. It was fun, it was emotional, it was joy. It was all the feels.

“Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.” ~ Lin-Manuel Miranda

Of course we were all decked out in our wedding finery. There could not have been a more beautiful group of wedding guests ever if I do say so myself.

“I love weddings: happy people coming together to celebrate in great clothes.” ~ Brad Goreski

“Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you

The love of all man’s days both past and forever:

Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.

The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours –

And the songs of every poet past and forever.”

~Universal Love – Rabindranath Tagore
