Monday April 21st – Danube River Lock Transit
Going through the lock system on a river boat is quite interesting. I took several pictures (because that is what I do (big grin)) to show the procedure. It had started to rain just before getting to the lock, but stopped just long enough for us to go on the top deck to watch everything as we traveled through.
This is the largest lock along this section of the Danube. We are scheduled to pass through 25 of them between Budapest and Nuremberg. Many of them will be at night-time while we are sound asleep.

GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful for the technology used in the lock system.
