Here in France again

End of the first week back in France. The weather has been much cooler so am feeling reasonably human again. Nevertheless, the sun is out everyday and we still need to keep the boat cool.

The Good;
Met Judy and Ian on Elodie . They had a little bit of a kerfuffal because the Capitaine denied all knowledge of jennylyle's booking of a winter mooring. MWNN provided his best 'French negotiation service' and Elodie is now moored opposite Levant on the Reysouse Pontoon.

Ian is passionate about wine, (and a fellow Alsace wine-fan)having produced some pretty good Ozzie Syrah himself in his incarnation as a wine-producer.

The Bad;
Forgot all my snail-mail addresses so no postcards from France this trip peeps. It's only three weeks so not a lot will happen anyways.

We will have a short cruise up the Seille this weekend and into next week. We can't go further afield as all the canals are now closed.

We may then go by car to Alsace for a couple of days, before Ihead on over to LJ in the Loire to finish the wallhanging; (all stiching on the design is now finished)

I'm so glad the weather has cooled down a bit for you. I noticed a huge difference coming back to the UK!

How wonderful - the boats are together at last - just think, next year we won't have to get on a train to see you, we will just have to walk across the pontoon. However, that doesn't stop me being green with envy that we are not there NOW enjoying your company. I did know that the capitaine had denied we had booked, which is quite remarkable - MWNN was with us when we reserved our mooring - I even handed the capitaine my card with our boat details - perhaps it was all lost in the translation!! Thank you MWNN for coming to the rescue.

I tried to text you a big hello on your boat phone but I couldn't get through. Hope you have a lovely trip up the Seille - such a gorgeous little canal. Lots of love J.
