ship's crew announced that because of low water levels in the
river, we have had to travel slower than normal and that the
last town (Rudesheim) of the trip was deleted from the schedule.
We were to spend 9 hours there. Instead they had us make a
morning stop today in Miltenberg. It is a small village along
the river. We are still trying to figure this out. At first we
heard that the river was above normal level and now the story is
that it is below normal. By looking at the shoreline it appears
that the river level is maybe a foot below normal but that is
all. Whatever, we are still having fun.
We arrive in the
village of Miltenberg
The old bridge
over the river
timber buildings in downtown Miltenberg.
One of the more
interesting buildings downtown. Note the flower boxes in the
windows. They have them all over town.
