The beach of our own


Nope for sure ;o) I was not in Arradon (Hi,Alice) or in Naples-Florida (Hi,Isabella) or even in Malta (Hi,Nadine) to snap or borrow this photo for today post ;o) but this is Cologne REAL beach and I've to wrote 'REAL' caused we do have artificial beach which is not for free such as Cologne Beach Club and Sky Beach but without sea view or direct water with Rhine view like this one ;o) This is public beach but wild beach as the government not in charge for lifeguard or any public needs facilities and that means you are on your own risk if you swim in the river and beach like this are many around Cologne. It would be save enough if not try to swim further more to the middle of the river. Well,what can I say for more...plenty tragedies happened already in Rhine river even for good swimmer and there is no "Forbidden to swim" sign around in this looking good tempting beach or in other beach of Cologne.

Great family beach -- I could see myself picnicking there.

That's a nice beach and you can sit under the trees, very comfortable.

A lovely view & a beautifully captured shot.

I thought Rhine river was...not very clean, but now I guess a good work has been done? I listen your advice about not to swim too far and will stay quietly in the shadow (the sun doesn't like me!)

It is a lovely beach, and the photo is great too.

Thanks all for the nice commented on our lovely beach ;o)

Right Alice,I think I should write down that government only in charge with cleaning ;o)

Dear Beetle, I'm glad you're back again and well :-)) and I like the photo very much because I like those tiny beaches where you can even find shells. Is this in Rhinepark or somewhere else?

Beetle said...

Dear April, I love this place too and it was in Niehler Hafen.

The beach looks nice to me. I could see spending some time there with you and others.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I do appreciate it a lot.

Well, it might be dangerous to swim there, but at least you don't have any alligators!
