    After 6 years aboard our Narrowboat Matilda Rose in the UK, we took the plunge and shipped her across to Europe. After 2 years in Europe we knew we didn't want to return to the UK so took the plunge and purchased a 1902 20 mtr Dutch Tjalk called Francoise and are now continuing our travels of the waterways of Europe in a buxom wench

Namur is stunning – as is the weather

Posted by contentedsouls on 06/06/2014

Just had uncle and eleven year old child come waterside on paddle boards to collect a mooring fee of 7 euros – I can live with that for mooring nice and peacefully in Wallonie’s capital city. Yesterday being a skinny day and horribly wet/overcast, the blokes went off to shuffle car and motorhome and Debbie and I did a good dog walk and then hit the shops …… ouch. Did our very best to re-inflate Namur’s economy.

Today we had the forecast glorious sunshine so we walked the dogs up to the citadel, had a pint and returned the hot and shattered dogs to the boat before lunching out and (Debbie) hitting the shops again. Sat and chilled on the boat roof as the day cooled down a bit.






A photo from the previous days cruise that Kevin brought round – MR looking minuscule next to the boat of my new mate that helped us get water. 


A lovely day and I wish you goodnight

    I’m a bit worried about your new ‘friend’, he looks like he’s getting just a little too close… LOL
