    Warnemunde and Rostock

    May 6, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    After a waffle breakfast at Mamsen's we took a bus into Rostock with our guide Durten. One couple was late so we had to wait for them once we exited the bus. However, as soon as they arrived, they left our group and went out on their own. We began with the university, continued with the town and finally the church of St. Mary. There is a lovely fountain in the plaza in front of the university that shows a family with children. It symbolizes that the family is the foundation of the culture of the city. I was especially impressed that we a now in the province of Mecklenburg, for which my home county is named. We returned to the ship for lunch and then went out to walk in Wernamunde. There was a street fair along the river selling all kinds of fish. We walked out to the end of the wharf and saw many sailboats coming in. We returned to the ship and took a nap before going down to the atrium to hear Olga play. We dined with Don and his partner John from Oregon. Mostly we discussed cooking and wine. We came to bed happy and looking forward to tomorrow in Gdansk, Poland.Read more
