The day started well with an excellent breakfast. Much more than we could eat. Fruit, yoghurt and muesli as well as the standard cheeses, meat and a boiled egg.
One of the better breakfasts we've had this year. To be fair to our other B&Bs though we were paying €67 instead of the more normal €50 further east. A significant difference.
We left before 9am and headed for town passing the Italian restaurant where we ate last night. We went out the back of the town and then headed for the Deich. The weather was cool and overcast, excellent for walking. However I found the first half of the walk, north to Radegast, pretty hard going.
The route from Radegast headed largely westwards to Hohnstorf.The sign shown in the first photograph is, we think, a PC interpretation of a male and a female going for a walk in the countryside.
The walk west seemed less tiring than the northerly stretch. As the day wore on it clouded over and we got some rain. The second photograph shows the bridge across the Elbe between Lauenburg and Honstorf. We arrived in the rain but had difficulty finding our B&B.
We did eventually find it and showered and did our daily wash. We then went to a restaurant near the bridge in the photograph for our evening meal. We found it using Google Maps. However it was an expensive place with below average food. A disappointing end to a hard day of 23.5km in 6.5 hours.
