Photo Gallery > A Cruise down the Rhine and Danube Rivers

Mark Hall, who grew up and learned to love boats on the banks of the Rancocas Creek in Delanco, wants you to ride along with him on the Danube and the Rhine Rivers of Southern Germany. The voyage, aboard a small cabin cruiser, will be the subject on Thursday, March 17, when the Shipman Mansion Foundation in Edgewater Park resumes for 2016 its monthly free programs for the public. The digital slide show records Hall’s excursion through waterways broad and narrow, hemmed in by steep hills or wending their way through wide plains, past gleaming passenger liners, big river freighters, and quaint little ferry boats.” There are “happy encounters with helpful, friendly people, on land and on the water – even with an occasional canoeist; picturesque old towns, some still entirely surrounded by their medieval walls, with their ancient half-timbered houses, and perhaps a baroque palace or two.” Along the way, the cabin cruiser passes “bustling modern cities, industry and busy wharves; castles and . . . vast vineyards growing up the slopes above the rivers, or stretching out as far as the eye can see.”
