Catching up on the French Canals…

“Time flies when you’re having fun” — who first said that?? I seem to have been starting each blog with apologies for not writing more and more frequently. It is always my good intention to write more often but….. But on the “Time flies” thing….. We have been at this now for EIGHT years – […]

A Week On Board Meanderer……

This blog will be different from my normal because actually it’s not written by me! We recently had a guest on board who kept a daily diary. She was lovely enough to send it to me and after I read it I thought it would make the most wonderful blog. She graciously agreed to allow […]

The New Adventures of Old Meanderer!!!

So a reasonable […]

The Wine Experience!

There’s no doubt that wines are a big part of the experience in France. The harvest happened about a month early this year thanks to the dry and hot spring. Early word is that it will be a good quality harvest (at least in Sancerre where we do our main visits). (Click on the photos […]

Meanderer – a new season begins on the French Canals…

It’s July already and we are cruising of course. All my good intentions of writing a blog early somehow vanished…. Hopefully you agree with “better late than never”. Spring here has been remarkable. We have had the warmest and driest since we began our adventure here. We’ve been able to completely repaint Meanderer from top […]
