We bought our bits and bobs from the market, ( I decided I needed some pancetta, don't know why but there it is)
stowed them in my rucksack and cut through the International market at the Rathaus, passing the salmon grilling stand.
Then it was down to the ferry terminal (couple of rather large cruise liners in, one was just disembarking its passengers)
We strolled along through the stands many just opening for the day some bars (mainly for the hardy or is that foolhardy) already doing a brisk trade in cocktails of every hue.
We passed one of the largest BBQ pig roasting stands I have ever seen.
|A pig in the mist????|
Some more salmon grills
And many other food and drink out lets
|The famous fried fish light house|
|Bread with various cheese fillings|
|Not for the healthy-lard cakes|
|The Alsatian Flammkuchen the French take on the pizza|
Passing the Gosch ship with its pendant. a yatching running in front of a stiff breeze
We stopped to watch the small racing boats doing a few turns, you could actually have a trial, Linda said she fancied it, but she saw my quizical sideways glance and said "may be not"
We reached the end of the stalls and Linda said well as we walked this far we may as well walk the rest to the Seebar and watch theWindjammer parade coming back in.
The Baltic fleet tied up, the crew watching over the comings and goings, the cadets sent to get rid of any excess energy.
We got 2 of the best seats, right at the front,we saw the Bundes Marine cadets racing in whalers, now if you have ever rowed one of these then you will know it is not easy and bleeding hard work.
