|Passengers enjoying their first night aboard the Luciole|
On the Monday afternoon, at the end of the cruise when we arrived in Auxerre, Penny entertained by disembarking from Luciole to the quay (via a couple of boats) on the boom, the swinging pole that enables the rider to 'fly' from barge to shore or visa versa. Always a fun experience. The love of this mode of travel is a family thing as can be seen when William, eldest son, showed his acrobatic skills a few years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QezO2BOVOJw
Cheese speeches were a little unusual this week. Touch of the mid-summer madness for sure, with a little help from our talented Dutch friend Loeloe.
