The next day it was a short ride to the German Maritime Museum which houses a very interesting historic ship which was found in the river Weser and is now exhibited here.

The discovery of the 'Bremen Cog' in 1962 in the Weser River was a sensation. After decades of conservation, the German Maritime Museum now displays the world's best preserved medieval merchant ship.
|How a cog could have looked like|
|Remains of the medieval cog carefully preserved|

|Very luxury interior for a WW2 submarine ..|
|It was operated by military and civilian crews for research purposes until 1982.|
We left Bremerhaven to the North were we found a nice caravan place in Duhnen at the North Sea. To explore the watt - the tidal flats - for the first time, we joined a guided walk, where we learned a lot about this eco system.
|The children had the most knowledge about the animals living here|
|Eddy didnt love the mud between his toes at all :-)|
|The watt seemed to extend endlessly|
|Big red worms living in the watt leave these worm-like sand piles all over the watt surface|
