A Sojourn in Germany – Part 3

The German Lake District was our day out today. We hired a motor launch and chugged across a couple of lakes:

We encountered a variety of different boats, including a human powered paddle steamer and a caravan boat, and a selection of alternatively powered canoes:

We had lunch at to an outdoor food and drink area. Waited an hour for a fresh cooked hot dog:

There was a good variety of wildlife:

Given that we were not in Bavaria, there was an understandable ban on mustaches:

Today is Ascension Day, which is a public holiday in Germany, and we saw literally hundreds of people in canoes:

And a few more pictures of the lakes and our multi-colour life jackets:

We rounded out the day with a dip with the fish in another local lake and a quick walk in the forest.

All in all, a lovely day!
