We have had a busy year on the boat, traveled many Kilometers, operated numerous locks, met up with lots of friends, eaten too much, drunk about enough, well …its been a good year.
Time now to get back and sort out the camper-van and the boat and relax with our good friends.
The weather has been incredible of late with some amasing sunrises and sunsets

We have seen many interesting sites and perhaps the one that sticks in my mind of late is that of an old fisherman with his classic car
Charming and brought a big smile.
Highlights of the year must include the Somme , with Chris and Jac , which was difficult at times but fascinating none the less. Our trip to Leers nord in the middle of the football tournament and the ensuing madness with Anita and family, and St Dizier with Bill and Jane .
We were very disappointed with the Brexit vote and as a small protest we are hanging the European flag alongside the red duster at the back of the boat, a small protest but makes me feel good.
