So my plan was to go and see the sailing school ship MIR arrive in the harbour again because that also means that they had to open the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Brücke (bridge) which I hadn´t seen open before but was so eagerly hoping to see open.
And so with the best weathe rpossible I went there and waited – and with quite a delay the ship finally arrived and it was a stunning view, really. The open bridge, the ship and the way how the ship was brought to the walking path…what a thing to watch!
I then continued my walk by the sea to check out the main area of HavenAhoi just to run off again because it´s been too crowded for my taste – and on the way back I enjoyed lovely icecream and a walk in the sand. This feeling of walking barefeet in the wet sand…so amazing!
In the evening I then still did some biking training to work off the calories from the day 😉
Sunday…actually my rest day, but I decided to go outside again for HavenAhoi, because the weather was sunny and amazing and I really wanted to see the tugboat ballet! So I first took a stroll around the harbour the sea and then went to check out the buoy-laying vessel.
I hadn´t seen such a ship before and the chat with one of the workers was really interesting. didn´t expect that to be so much work. But you never stop learning, right? So I spent a lot of time there and then watched some rescuing stunts that were performed just before the tugboat ballet. From Hamburg and other harbours I know the tugboat ballet with music, and this time here it was without – still impressive what you can do with a tugboat but something was simply missing to not make it feel like it was taking forever. A pity because it could´ve been just so amazing!
Afterwards I took another relaxed walk back, enjoyed the smell of the sea and then relaxed at home!
