After a leisurely breakfast, we were taken on a walking tour in the oldest city in the Netherlands. We are cruising on the Rhine but the city is nearby on the Waal River. We went up a hill to the Valkhof spook house, chapel, and remnants of the Imperial castle. The spook house is really a museum and temporary home of artists who claim the house is haunted.

On up we went to the town center to see the great St. Stephen's Church and then to the main shopping district where an outdoor market was set up for the day. I wandered off and found the back entrance (city entrance) to Volkhof Park and found that the chapel was open for viewing!

We were back before 1, had lunch. Then a leisurely afternoon while on our way to Cologne. Britta, our Cruise Director, gives talks while sailing about the area we went through, the river, the canals and locks, etc. Danielle is our Activity Director and he is a hoot! He has lots of games and stuff after dinner and before Albert plays music for dancing. He also helps with the tours and got to know everyone by name within a few days!
