Day 98: Sonderborg Denmark to Lubeck Germany - Mon 11 Aug

Day 98: Sonderborg Denmark to Lubeck Germany -  Mon 11 Aug
Fine morning but wind started soon after waking. Waved in direction of Fred and Mary's Summer Palace on lake - the Danish Royals sure picked a flat windy island to live on. 
Hit Germany, industry and engineering so obvious. Passed field after field of ripening corn (food or fuel? Ah, biomass plant the answer!) into Hanseatic city of Lubeck, a UNESCO World Heritage site, straight toward most impressive 1478 medieval Holsten Gate, and bridge over Trave River which forms a moat around the Old Town. 

Where else would you wear your rat??


Next door are the salt warehouses, quite crooked as they stack side-by-side.


My sister the artist would not like her art displayed here!!
Ah, so "bad" means spa or bath.....

Following tasty anchovy pizza lunch took a canal cruise - very pleasant. Surprised to see so much parkland/ greenery as circumnavigated island - most Old Towns are jam-packed in their entirety with narrow streets and tall skinny adjoined housing. 





Sun disappeared, cooling rapidly, we retreated to far carpark with other motorhomes to stay night. Dinner of soup and crispbread watching Dragon Boat on canal, and sunset’s golden light on steeple's clock face and terrace house windows.
