K&V suggested a trip down the Rhine and lunch in a little town called Boppard.
The trip down the river took us past the famous Lorelei rock, it just looked like a rock to me but apparently legend has it that a mermaid used to lure sailors to their deaths as they navigated the tight bends of the Rhine at this point.
This is the said Mermaid, which looks a bit phallic from a distance !
Once we arrived at Boppard Jane and Val were keen to do a bit of shopping……..
Although I thought this seemed more interesting, and you could book the rooms by the hour !
A great spot to eat, a lovely home-cooked meal and bottle of the local Riesling made for a very pleasant lunch. I have to say that German portions are ideal for me, just the right size, and as Jane can’t eat all of hers I get to try a bit of hers as well !
Boppard was a great place to visit and we were spoilt with the great weather, so even though we had a big meal ,Jane suggested we had an ice-cream and we all agreed !
A bit of crafty cropping of the photograph and you can’t see our stomachs, although you might catch the merest suspicion of mine! (Not a pretty sight)
The trip back through the valley in the sunshine gave us a great opportunity to admire the many castles perched up high on the surrounding hills.
Back to Oberwesel.
Just in time for tea ! ( actually that was yesterdays tea, but I liked the photo.)
