The day was finally here when we were going to see all of the castles along the Rhine, but Mother Nature almost did not corporate. Our day started with very very thick fog. Marianne, the Cruise Director was thinking we may not see any castles today. But not long after we set sail, the sun broke through the fog and cleared to be a crisp clear beautiful day.
