Place: Boppard, Germany
Weather: cloudy

We left Luxemburg at 9:15 am and went around city again and it was beautiful. Stopped at frontier at Germany in a little village and had custom check and was so pretty.
Went into shop and Patty talked with lady read well. Bought wine and cheese. Real great. County is more beautiful than any seen so far. Grapes grown on sides of mountain. Went through mountains around Moselle River. Went down and touched river at frontier. Went on. (before Germany went to Patton’s grave and the USA monument and graves of soldiers fought in World War II. It was very sad. Walked down to a couple of graves. Julius Drumond & James Bishop from Atl. (I almost cried).

After crossing

frontier, stopped in a very beautiful village. Had cheese bread and wine. Real good. The village was so pretty, I couldn’t believe it. Went on to Boppard. We went straight to boat and went on a cruise on Rhine River. Saw castles and the Lorelei Rock. Came back and stayed in the Rein Lust Hotel and it was great. It faced the Rhine River and had big windows (no screens) opening on river. A beautiful view. After dinner (very good) had a band (German) to play and the group had a good time.
