Boat on the River


Our last full day in Kropp was entirely free, and our host parents decided to take us to the northern most city in Germany, Flensburg, then off to Denmark to visit the site of a famous battle (more on that in a later post).

So helpful that one of the boats had the name of the city on it

Ummmm… church.  That’s about all I can tell you


I’m not sure exactly why, but I was a surprised when I looked down into the water and saw jelly-fish just hangin’ around.  In my head I thought: “but surely it must be too cold for them.”  You’d think all that Planet Earth I watch would have sunk in a little.

We also took some time to visit a small museum dedicated to the restoration process of older ships.  Our host dad spent years in the Navy and was definitely helpful in explaining things.

I also happened across several boats that had been re-purposed in a way that I just knew Nancy Roberts would appreciate.

Out door planter, anyone?

With a little sprucing up, maybe this could be Daisy’s summer home.


Right before leaving we passed this sign, and as much as I wanted to get a picture of our host dad standing next to it for comparison I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.  Lucky for you I already had one of him from a previous post!

Seriously, though… right?!
