Ferry cross the Bodensee (twice)

Two beautiful Ferry crossings over the Bodensee to facilitate concerts in Elgg (Switzerland) & Immenstaad (Germany).

Both evenings very loud and enthusiastic! Lots of old friends at the Swiss concert; Silvan, Andrea & Michel, Ulla Schmid & Lotti Viola and Hildegard Sutter - how delightful. Irene's Mum & Silvan got the Are You Lonesome? treatment!

We started the "Farewell Richard" process at Elgg, and he was presented with a bottle of wine... he may not be able to carry his suitcase by the end of December!
...and another friend Urs gave a wonderful, moving singing tribute to Richard after the concert..

...and it was standing room only at Immenstaad.... (they only have two shows a year, so they are very popular!)

We were in a dressing room full of the Carnival costumes at Immenstaad - they start rehearsals now! - and of course it carries on for months!
Mike felt like the Comedian Harmonists (Ich wollt' ich wär' ein Huhn).... so, wishing he were a hen, tried one on:
Very fetching...
