Toul stopover

3pm - We have just had another short thunderstorm with heavy rain that was so short it has done nothing to reduce the temperature but has succeeded in raising the humidity levels that are very uncomfortable when one is taking the maximum dose of asthma medication and yet still struggling.

The weather is so debilitating, the dogs are suffering, my asthma is barely under control in the heat,and the planned journey home for MWNN so fraught with complications (the strikes, leaving me stranded in an unbearably hot boat in a port with little shade) that we are looking at ‘alternative plan B). As usual, a little bit of lateral thinking on my part has come up with a reasonable idea. MWNN goes back to Pont de Vaux, collects the car and then we all bugger off back home this weekend. The ‘problem’ of ‘resident outlaws’ is one that will have to ve overcome, but we have some ideas about that too!

Our usual ‘home in the UK for August’ is thereby ‘brought forward’ to June, and we return to continue our cruise to Strasburg and then back to our moorings in P de V. We shall see if that works out as we hope! I have an ‘appointment with a health farm’ in August (what do you mean - I don't need a health farm, I've just been cruising in France for 6 weeks someone hasn't been paying attention to my LJ entires have they now, eh? )I should be able to return alone, leaving MWNN and dogs in P de V where he will have the use of the car and will not be stranded in a strange port.
