Meeting up with old friends Bob and Jackie at Bailly, there are hundreds of Australians around this year, but luckily most can take a joke about the cricket!!
The lovely mooring at Acolay where we saw the French at play
Teams for river jousting turned up in fine regalia
and the French do love a trophy or two
good fun seemed to be had by all
and some got very wet which perhaps was the whole idea, but very shallow so no real danger
the whole village turned out to support the event, impressive.
The girls had a go and from where I was standing they seemed more determined than the men
A beautiful misty dawn in Acolay
If you are ever passing this way give this village a look
My favourite statue at Mailly
The sun is up, the boat is going fine, and the views are incredible, life is good
The fine mooring by the climbing rocks at Rochas
And a mighty fine climber to savour
Children adventure groups were also out on the water
Unfortunately, did not have the time to climb up myself maybe next time
after the busy stop at Rochas, a tranquil stretch leading to Clamecy
In the guidebooks this is described as a fortified farm, would liked to learned more about its history, made a note to do so next time.
The entrance into Clamecy along the Yonne river.
