Wanderers on amphibious excursion!

Saturday 14th May sees the Wanderers off for a 'Wattwanderung' from Cuxhaven to the island of Neuwerk.

Travel instructions: 9.45 meet at Hamburg Main Station Travel Centre.

10.07 depart on Metronom Train to Cuxhaven, arriving 11.50.

Walk to harbour and along the coast westwards.

13.00 picnic lunch near Duhne

14.30 tide should be low enough to walk away from shore.

17.30 approx. walk onshore to Sahlenburg. Coffee and cakes.

Bus to Cuxhaven. 18.10 or 19.10 train from Cuxhaven to Hamburg, arriving at either 20.00 or 21.00.

Walking all the way to Neuwerk and back in one day may be rather
ambitious, but there is the option of walking there and returning on a
horse-drawn coach!

Your Wanderer-in-chief advises 'Do bring amphibious footwear and wear shorts! If we don't walk as far as the shells and stones, it is possible to go barefoot, but ideally wear shoes that can be either washed or thrown away afterwards, e.g. old jogging shoes or tie-on plastic shoes, which don't slip off in 20cm of sludge. Bathroom flip-flops are useless.

Group train tickets will be purchased as usual, so please let Stuart know by Friday 13 May if you intend to come.
