For once did not set the alarm as no immediate plans other than back into Regensburg to take a couple more photos before setting sail at 11:15 (even had time to download the last 4 days of newspapers as I had returned for the 10:00 scavenger hunt, which had been changed to 14:30) headed for Passau.
The below photos are from my very short trip back into Regensburg after breakfast and before sailing at 11:15

Although it should have been a more leisurely day (and it was less steps as my feet are not quite as sore tonight), but again Grand Circle Tours are very good at planning events, activities and other distractions. We had the scavenger hunt followed by a visit to the kitchens, the now normal mid-afternoon cake or stollen (also had a demonstration on how to make stollen somewhere in there) as well as Port Talk and Dinner.

Could barely keep my eyes open at parts of the afternoon – floating along and looking out at the passing river banks – in the fog one couldn’t see much else. I did manage to read a couple of the downloaded newspapers, talked to several other people, watched a couple of lock passages and in general relaxed.
