We were able to take our landlords out on Saturday as a special "Thank You". We went, as per their suggestion, for a boat ride and dinner cruise on the Mosel and Rhine Rivers. But it was even more special because there was a festival going on called "Rhine in Flames". It involved special lighting of all the towns along the river as well as fireworks that were timed to go off one after another as our boat (and dozens of other boats) went down the river. It was a special night and I am glad I was feeling well enough to enjoy it.
Sunday and Monday were both spent here at the apartment taking it easy and needlepointing. Today we attempted a day tour to a neighboring town (St. Goar). It was pretty but our heart wasn't really into it. I am hoping for better things tomorrow when we are thinking that we will take the train to Cologne to check out the cathedral there.
