Elsfleth, Hunte 5 August 2012

Where the river Hunte meets the river Weser Elsfleth was founded around the 9th century. It was a place for shipbuilding and shipping companies. Its decline came with the upcoming of steam navigation and steel hulls.
Now Elsfleth still hosts a nautical college. We are visiting Elsfleth quite regularly with our own sailing boat and enjoy the "small escapes".
The German weather forecast is not as good as it used to be. For this weekend they predicted thunderstorms and heavy rain. And we canceled our planned trip and just only visited Elsfleth. As you can see with no thunderstorm but with sunshine and some clouds. I think next time I will not even take a look at the weather forecast.
