Today: 40km | Total: 509km
We have passed the 500km mark and thus 2/3rd the way to Cuxhaven. We now edge closer to the old East/West border zone. Traffic on the rivrr remains low, but we met one other paddler who is heading for Harburg. It seems the ones we met earlier are well ahead of us by now. The weather turned pretty hot again midday. Highlight of the day were four Elbe beavers in a reserve near Wahrenberg. Also enjoyable was a short visit to Rühstädt with all its storch nests and a brief stop in Wittenberge.
