Laying down the wine!

... came to €19 so excellent value and quality.

We returned by tram to unload our goodies, then John went back to get a quantity of French red wine to lay down for possibly taking back to UK. Next Belgian beers!!

We have been talking about next year and although nothing is set in stone, we think we will sail ST back to UK and the Norfolk Broads where she was built. It would be late spring or early summer next year when the weather ...

The longest tunnel in France!

... bump from side to side. We punctured one of our big fat round fenders at one point, so that makes 3 in total for John!! Eventually the Peniche settled down and stopped using his engine and rudder so dramatically and so did we making Isi redundant on the boat hook. The time to get through the tunnel was supposed to be 2 hours so this took total concentration by John on the steering and Isi armed with a boat hook pole to fend off at the stern. We went through a ...

We took some photos then we walked up and into the town of St Quentin where in the distance we could hear an event taking place. There was music coming through the speakers which ...

... wants one for Christmas now!!

We sat at a picnic table in the welcome shade and chatted with the 2 Dutch couples. They warned us to be ready for a Macquincourt tunnel which we get towed through and we will go through very soon. The tunnel is the longest in France at 5670 metres and ventilation is a problem, hence the towing by an electric tunnel tug boat with our engine off. Ideally we get right behind the electric towing boat or as close to it ...
