Walking Along the Rhine: Schaffhausen -> Ellikon

A three-day tour along the Rhine to welcome the Spring and get out of the snowshoe mentality. :-)

Starting with a stroll through the nice old town area of Schaffhausen and then along the shore of the Rhine. Past the Rheinfall -- not overly high but very powerful -- with its masses of people and and then further along. Through Rheinau -- nice place to build a town, nice old cloister, but the town itself was somewhat disappointing -- and then further along to the teeny "town" of Ellikon and the masses of people there to enjoy the ferry ride across the Rhine and the lovely Good Friday weather. We had a nice meal and stayed the night in the hotel there.
