|The morning is sailing to Miltenberg allowing us to catch on a few things like these entries, a little on-line banking and the washing. Miltenberg is a very nice town with a lot of the original houses. The guided was quite amusing and tried to give us an idea of what living in this town would have been like in the past. She had lots of stories about witches and how the houses are owned by multiple people. The shopping was a little disappointing as it was Saturday afternoon in a small German country town. They closed up while we had tour. Alison had seen a shoe she was going to buy but when we came back the shop was closed, cranky Al. We all agreed though that it was one of the nicest towns we have visited so far. They just seem to get better as we go.
On returning to the boat we had a cookie making demonstration by a woman who was going to be a nun until she met at man. There was an interesting story to go with how to make Vanillkipferl, a German cookie. She had a couple of the gentleman from the boat do all the hard work while she gave her life story. There was a tasting as well, very nice. She also gave everybody the recipe so we will have to make some when we get home.
After tea we had the Passenger’s Concert. Overall it was pretty good, it started out with the cruise director handing out signs and telling a story while the people wearing the signs acted out what he was saying, it was very funny. This was followed by one of the passengers playing the piano and he was quite good. This was followed unfortunately by a Western Australian who thought he could tell jokes and he went on and on. We them had a poem, a group of Australians do Old Macdonald with animal hats on??? The concert was finished with a prayer, which was hilarious.
