... some soccer fans (singing in our pub before they moved on, having a great time) and then we moved down the street for lunch. Closer to the boat we found a great restaurant and we sat inside although I think the locals were staying outside - it was still a little cloudy and cool for us - we had a fabulous leek soup and potato roll with mushrooms and onions - just delicious. Now, we were ready to head to ...
Beautiful morning as we left Andernach and cruised towards Cologne. The river traffic is noticeably heavier and bigger, with many more River Ships (barges), but the scenery along the river is beautiful.

Second stop, the Loreley on a promontory on the Rhine, a statue of a young woman whom legend has it used to attract sailors with her singing. The vessels were then plundered.
