The following morning we headed for Cochem in the car (about an hour drive along the Mosel River). It is such a beautiful drive! We had headed that way thinking we were going to take a boat ride up (or down!) the river. When we arrived, though, we changed our minds and decided to stay in the town and go exploring! The Reischburg Castle is there and we took a tour through the castle.
Then we stopped for lunch...this was our view!
We also took a ride up the ski lift to the top of a mountain and had a cup of coffee after walking around a bit. I was terrrrrrrified the entire way up and down, but I did it! Andrew was very sweet and didn't move a muscle during the entire ride!
Before leaving for Bernkastel though, Andrew and I walked around the area across from our hotel in Piesport.
Early that evening we headed back to Piesport and met Bruce and Linda for dinner at Lekker:
and Linda treated us to a delicious bottle of sparkling Reisling:
Monday morning we had a nice breakfast:
