Bamberg, Germany – Post 13

Wow, doing catch-up with the final days of the trip. Sorry this has taken a couple of days, it was too hectic to post while changing locations.  Our last stop on the cruise (before we get off) is Bamberg.
But first let’s start with a couple of views before we arrived. Wild Irises, side river channels and other flowering plants along the river.

    Sue, thank you sharing your lovely blog and wonderful photos! I love your “camera” eye, as your photos are so unique and interesting! I am seeing things I don’t even remember from the trip! Thank you again!

    1. Thank you Tracee. The images are from all members of our little group, so I try to include some of everyone’s images – so I will pass that on. I am glad you enjoyed. There are 2 more posts to come – as I haven’t even started on Prague yet with over 2000 images to sort through.

    Sue: Thanks for the trip! I see the water was high there, just like here after the tropical storm. Hope you are home safe and sound, looking forward to your program on Thurs. Pat and Guy

    1. I am home. Still have 2 more posts for the trip. Got out of Paris just before the train strike and the floods and sailed through Germany just ahead of the flooding. Arrived home to circle TPA as the squall line came through. I am getting the feeling its me.
      Looking forward to Thursday evening. Thanks
