Friday 18th July Auxonne to St Jean de Losne

Back to St J de L in yet more blistering heat. This year has been much harder than our maiden French cruise in 2000. We have suffered from relentless heat, strikes and recalsitrent lock keepers and have not had much respite in the way of the company of other boaters. OK so I had bronchitis for 3 of the 6 months in 2000, during the rain, sleet and wind but at least we could pile on more layers, light the solid fuel stove, and cook pot raosts to keep warm. Once you’ve stripped off the last layer, there’s nothing else you can do to stay cool!

Met Michedlle and Paul who we first met in Langres in 2000, as we entered the marina. They cruise on ‘Imagine’, a barge that they run as a B&B (Barge and Breakfast) Paul admitted that they’d installed air conditioning in their guest cabins this year. More on their boat at a later date.
