Canal cruise Burgundy

Luciole Blog

8th - 14th May 2016

Week 2 of the 2016 season and our first cruise back from Clamecy to Auxerre. Once again a week of smooth sailing, aided in no small part by our contingent of wonderful guests, all American and all extremely enjoyable company. This group was always happy and always helpful, assisting with locks and helping Captain Francisco steer the boat, otherwise they were off cycling or walking alongside the boat as it cruised, arriving back just in time for cocktails and a refreshment. Even loveable mascot Bob the toy duck was on hand to brighten up the deck and put a smile on everyones face. The weather was a mixed bag of sunny days and wet evenings, fairly common for this time of year and the reason we're fortunate to live in such a lush environment here in Burgundy..

Additionally this week we were very sad to say goodbye to hostess Emma, heading back home to sunny England after her 2 weeks of training up our new recruits Amelia and Arthur. As well as our Technical man William going back to the UK after 7 weeks straight of preseason preparation. We wish them both the best and hope they enjoy the chance to rest.
