We met up with Len and Marion again at Cappy. They had invited for Sunday lunch at a local restaurant but we were waiting for my oldest friend John Butterworth and his wife Jenny who were due to arrive for a quick visit on their way back from Germany. Fortunately, John and Jenny arrived in time for lunch so we all merged for a England/Australian long lunch.

It was a too short a visit and early this morning they set off on their merry way but we did commit to meeting up more regularly
We are near the end of the Somme, Cappy being the last recognised mooring before rejoining the Canal du Nord, but the Somme has been enchanting and we will return soon.

Throughout your journey up and down the Somme you are accompanied by agents from the Conseil General office at Amiens.You know all is well when you are approaching a lock or lifting bridge and a bright orange van with a smiling agent arrives to prepare your passage.
