A colleague of mine at the university has a cabin cruiser that he and his son built. On Tuesday, he invited me to join him and several of his friends whom I also know on a boat trip on the Nemunas River. We enjoyed a peaceful cruise on the Nemunas, then turned down a smaller river. We docked at Raudonvaris and hiked up a hill to see the manor house and mini-castle. I even got to drive the boat for a while. The weather was perfect and the scenery was beautiful. I was amazed that we were the only pleasure boat out on the river. Apparently boating isn’t very popular. Lucky for us — we had a peaceful, beautiful river all to ourselves.
