We could hardly wait for the day our river cruise finally arrived on The Middle Rhine. This area, also called the Rhine Gorge, has a castle almost every half mile. The only problem is the day dawned cloudy, cold and windy. Folks would pop out on deck just long enough to capture a picture, and run back inside. Many of us were even wrapped in blankets .The crew tried their best to make things festive by passing trays of strawberry adorned champagne. We, on the other hand, were lined up for the coffee and hot chocolate!
The Marksburg, a favorite, and the only castle that somehow managed to escape damage during the many wars in this area!
