We were already docked when I first glanced out. Our side of the ship is facing away from the port so there wasn’t much to see apart from an industrial complex across the water. We had breakfast in a largely empty buffet. This port, Warnemunde in Germany is the point used to visit Berlin and those going there left early as it is a few hours away. Warnemunde Is a fairly old sea port and very pretty.
We didn’t worry about visiting Berlin as we are going there after we get off the ship. We walked into town, a few hundred metres away and wandered the shops along a canal. At the end of the waterway where it met the ocean there is a lighthouse. I climbed the steps to the top to get some photos while Darlene rested below.
We continued our walk and found a restaurant with an English version of the menu and stopped there for lunch. We had a German white wine with the meal, a nice Riesling. After lunch we walked to the station and boarded a train for Rostok, about 20 minutes away. We boarded a tram at the train station and rode it into the city. From there we walked a pedestrian mall to a square where a street market was open. We eventually found some wifi in the Visitor Centre and caught up with email and managed to contact home. Rostok is all cobble stones and old buildings and a pretty place.
We noticed here in Germany not as many people speak English. We pressed the information button at the station on our way back and were told by the speaker that no English help was available. We made it back anyway.
We had a nice evening meal with a French red wine and sat next to a couple from Minnesota and had a good chat. We had plans of seeing a show but upon returning to the cabin we decided to stay in and watched TV.
