Spring time means the Luciole is about to be woken out of her hibernating winter sleep. She will be prepared for her 48th year of hotel barging and will turn 88 years old. Although the boat does not run in the winter time (As the canal is shut) work still continues, it is peak time in the office - time is spent improving the website and brochure, maintenance work also continues as she still needs a lot of looking after. Although many things have changed to the Luciole; different paint colour combinations and even been extended - Her fun and warm atmosphere still remains much the same.

The Luciole in the 1970s, she may look different, but she still feels the same
