After a busy Saturday of getting our patio furniture in order, we left Sunday morning for Cuxhaven.  This is a city located on the North Sea and next to the mouth of the Elbe River.  Christian’s mom, grand uncle, uncle & aunt were there celebrating his grand uncle’s birthday.  The weather was a bit gray and chilly but that didn’t stop many people from walking along the shore and enjoying the time by the sea. 

On the way there we drove through one of the first tunnel projects that Christian worked on.  We had to take pictures!

During the low tide, the water recedes so far back that you can either take a horse and carriage or walk to Neuwerk island.
