Rhine River valley, which is filled with castle ruins, beautiful villages, and many, many vineyards.
We boarded our return vessel to find a slide on the top deck. The boys were in heaven sliding away as we cruised back upstream. We had worried about some forecasted showers when we planned our day, and they finally caught up with us on that return cruise. We dashed down to the enclosed deck for the last hour or so of the ride.
Since we had promised the boys a sweet treat in exchange for good dinner and pleasant dinner behavior, we stopped at an ice cream bar. I again chose the erdbeer eis (strawberry gelatto). The boys both had these adorable mouse like ice cream treats. Josh had a shake. It was a perfect ending to a beautiful day on the river.
