Crossing The Rhine

I was out with my Humans in The Car (I know but I was persuaded by talk of ball throwing and nice gentle walks in the woods…) not long ago and we came across this river.

My Humans say it’s a castle with the rather long name of Pfalzgrafenstein. Built to charge tolls to travelers on the river around 1326. Tad old then… Anyway next thing I know my Humans are saying we have to cross the river. What? We are in a car, The Car what’s wrong with a perfectly good bridge?

We are not going to the boat castle? Tell me we are not?

Next this flat boat thing turns up, bloody hell…

You Humans have got to be kidding me, WE ARE NOT GOING ON THAT!

But we did… No stopping a Human once their mind is set.

  1. I know I’m lucky, we are so lucky that we are living only 30 minutes from the Rhine. Its going to be really sad for all of us when we leave at the end of the year. Lots to miss…

    Hey smells terrific!!

  2. Well done to the All Blacks – my money was on them after they walked all over France.

    You have been busy blogging, Ralph. I have just been released from Prison Kennel – Humans were back in the UK for over a week – didn’t even have WiFi in there. Must get my blogging mojo back.

    Big celebrations in your house tonight?
