Middle Rhine River Cruise

 The last time I posted on "Oh The Places I've Been", was our visit to Marksburg Castle in Brauback. You can see the castle standing proudly on top of the hill behind me and my sister, Fe.
Right after touring the Marksburg, we boarded the Namedy to sail on the Middle Rhine River and have our lunch there. I won't say much because I just want you to enjoy the pictures as we sail along.

My 2 sisters, Fe and Tessie, on either side of our friend, Edna.

We passed by so many vineyards.

Beautiful fall colored leaves amidst the houses in the village.

and so many castles
I think those animals are goats.

We also passed by Lorelei's statue. If you want to read about the legend or folklore on Wikipedia, click here  

I hope you all enjoyed the virtual sailing along the Rhine River. Thanks for stopping by.
I would like to link with The Tablescaper's

Thanks for hosting, Alma!

That castle waaaaaaay up on top of the hill reminds me of the castle at Disney. This must have been such a fun time!

Beautiful! Germany's countryside is so pretty!


What a great trip Chris and with your two sisters, even more fun! I love that part of Germany, it's so beautiful to see, you feel in other times. I did the same trip many years ago, so I have ugly pics, not like your modern it!!!
