29th July - 4th August 2018
A family charter group joined the Luciole on the day of the end of the Tour de France. The rendezvous just off the Avenue de Champs-Elysees was a little bit of a challenge, but Captain Francisco pulled it off. Sunday night in Auxerre was as thrilling as ever and the ‘little ones’ made good use of the fountains. Dripping they were - on a hot summers night.
Our Californian family was full of energy - it was tree climbing and a visit to Guedelon on the Monday, horse riding and a visit to Auxerre on Tuesday, Noyers-sur-Serein and Cave wall climbing on Wednesday, Vezelay and lots of swimming on Thursday and on Friday - canoeing the calm and tranquil River Cure to finish. Perfect being in the cool of the trees - shading us from the sun. It has been a hot week. Thank goodness for our excellent AC systems!
Bob and Sandy, congratulations once again for your 60 years of marriage and thank you for choosing to cruise on the Luciole.
