From May 09th - 11th was a big party in Hamburg. Like every year in May, Hamburg was celebrating the Hamburg Port Anniversary. Of course, Fred joined this event. Sadly the weather wasn't so nice, but some people say, this is typical for Hamburg. They call it "Schmuddelwetter".

A lot of ships are visiting Hamburg every year to join the party.

Wow, so many tall-ships.

Navy, coastguard and more tall-ships,...

This is the steam-tug "Tiger". Fred has been on board some years ago. Do you remember?

On sunday, Fred was sailing again. The clouds above Hamburg - Blankenese look quite dark but it was not raining.

The port anniversary always ends with the "Grand Departure Parade". All ships are leaving Hamburg together. A great picture!

What a beautiful view.

Welcome-point in Wedel. They are playing the national anthem for every ship that is arriving or leaving Hamburg.

For Fred it's time now to say "goodbye Hamburg" again. Next week he will continue his voyage around the world. Where? Let it be a surprise!
