Auxerre is quiet. The town has slipped into 'winter mode'. Shutters on the houses are closed at dusk, keeping in the warmth. Keeping out the chill.
The River Yonne glides on through. Running to the bright lights and gaiety of Paris. Under the Eiffel Tower, under the bridges, on to the sea, to the English Channel.
On her mooring, beneath the cathedral, the Luciole waits. Patiently. Spring will come again and with the longer daylight days, crew will emerge to lovingly prepare for our 2017 passengers. .
