This was a full, free day, cool but sunny. The hotel breakfast buffet was splendid, with champagne for mimosas. The main square on this Thursday morning was a flower market, and other vendors set up nearby.

Marty and Emily ran into Linda and Ken at the famous statue of the Musicians of Bremen, and they all took a boat ride on the Weser River — along with about 90 school children! The text of the narrative in English was provided for us. As we disembarked, Helen and Kathy arrived to take the next tour.

Marty walked in the Schnoor Quarter, the oldest district. Emily rented a bicycle and rode around Bergerpark and partway into Blockland (wetlands).
Some of us met at the St. Petri Dom cathedral for a free vocal and organ concert in the evening.
