    Camp Day 6 Rhein Falls and Schaffhausen

    A travel blog entry by hayleymcfarlane on Jan 25, 2015

    ... when they came out they wouldn’t let the door shut so the next person could get in for free. That really was tag teaming at its best.

    We went inside the castle and walked right up to the top. The view was amazing. You could see the whole of Schaffhausen with the Rhein running through part of it, all the houses covered in snow and it was just perfect. We spent a little while up there before heading back into town to the train station. ...

Then you can go down all the way and get onto ...

    ... a little snow never stopped my exploring - I lived in Finland, Russia and Utah, after all. I stared early and went down to the Zurich harbor to catch a boat for a river cruise, which was included in the price of my 24 Zurich Card. Along with about 20 others, I cruised up and down the snowy shoreline for a hour and a half.

    ... so plan B was undertaken, a trip in the bus around the lake to an outside swimming pool which included a 3 metre diving board straight into the lake.... That certainly tested the kids nerves.

    After swallowing half the lake after jumping in from a 3 metre platform Alistair threw up all over Dave Smith!!!! LOL's all around from the rest of the gang... "such kind thoughts !"
