This morning we were up early and had breakfast before we met our local guide for a tour of the city of Regensburg. As our guide talked we meandered through the narrow streets of this beautiful city. At the end of the pier we came to the Historic Sausage Kitchen of Regensburg. This is perhaps the oldest continuously open public restaurant in the world (14th century). If you wanted takeaway, you could go in and order but you couldn't sit down at the tables outside unless you wanted to be waited on and had a bigger order. We were encouraged to stop after the tour, which we did. We saw the Dom St. Peter Cathedral (which took 250 years to build). Across the street from the Sausage Kitchen we watched a cuckoo clock presentation. After the tour John and I went back to Dom St. Peter to have a look inside. The cathedral houses the largest free hanging organ in the world.

We returned to the ship for lunch. We were scheduled to set sail at 3:00 p.m. Yes, we have been on the ship since Sunday afternoon and are just now leaving on Monday afternoon. We will be going through 14 locks on this cruise so our tour director had a presentation in the lounge about the locks. The rest of the day we spent getting to know people, relaxing
