Charlottesville is on our mind tonight as fanatics exercise their right to free speech and excite the media into a frenzied state of incessant and sensationalized reporting. God help America.

Friday was mostly spent exploring lower Manhattan's waterfront. A ride on the Staten Island ferry capped off the tour.
We couldn't resist a stop for lunch at the original Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. It was packed!

Ally is taking her turn babysitting. We left Solo for a few days in NY. Lunch at Mister Dips in Brooklyn was first on the list. Then, we shared a solemn couple hours at the 9/11 Memorial. The Oculus transportation hub at the WTC connected us to our subway and hotel in Union Square; close to my old stomping grounds.

Lancaster County is beautiful and famous for the simple lifestyle of its population. It's such a curiosity to see in 2017. They must think we're curious too.
Anyway, here a quick read from USA Today on why America loves camping:

Back to the heat, we had a simple dinner of BBQ leftovers and watched "Ozark" in the air conditioning.
Bill made pressure-cooked steel cut oats for breakfast Tuesday. Yum!

Continuing our journey northeast, we had a great barbecue lunch on the patio with Solo at Moe's Original BBQ in Asheville. A gorgeous ride through the Smokies took us to Hungry Mother State Park for a campfire and popcorn dinner. It was nice to sleep with the windows open and enjoy still of the night.
Virginia is two for two on our most appreciated campsites list.

Our surroundings were so beautiful we just relaxed at camp all day. We broke out the deck of cards and played 500 rummy, crazy eights and the most fun of all: spades!
Dinner included shrimp on the barbie, grits in the pressure cooker, and a delightful green salad. And of course toasted marshmallows for dessert!

Buses were at the dock at 1:30pm for a guided tour of the city. We also had a guided tour on the canals where we had a quick look at the Anne Frank house.
A small group of us arranged for tickets to the Van Gogh museum afterwards. We hopped the #2 tram and found the museum to be quite inspiring, despite the massive crowds. It was the first rainy day of the trip and half the city seemed to be visiting the museum, too.
We took the tram back to Central Station, had a beer and famous French fries before the short walk to the ship for dinner.
Although we didn't ride bikes in Amsterdam, nearly a million other people did! Crazy mayhem!

We took the bikes out in the drizzling rain and explored miles of path along the riverfront. We navigated to Cologne's only surviving structure of WWII bombings, the Cathedral. The Cathedral was built to house the bones of the three kings (Magi).
Kölsch beer was a must-try before heading back to the ship. A dinner invitation from the captain was waiting in our room. Very exciting!

When we arrived in Koblenz Germany we were feeling our afternoon of rosé! Hankering for food, we walked around town and found a burger and fries. It was a nice change from the formal dining option on the ship.
A lovely day ended with a lovely sunset.

Back to the boat at noon, we walked to town and had a Rüdesheim coffee. Yum! It's basically an Irish coffee but with local Asbach brandy. Our kind waiter offered to take our picture and decided to photobomb one too. Haha.
AmaPrima left the dock at 2pm for an afternoon of cruising to Koblenz.
