    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

Finished the port side hatches (still moored at Lumes)

Posted by contentedsouls on 12/07/2014

Well the rain held off long enough for me to complete all my chores and then settle down to an afternoon of painting. I have, at last, completed the port side and am now feeling all inspired to start on the rear doors. I’m just off to cafe Renee to practice my French conversation and play the daft English person – it would be rude to deprive the good folk of Lumes of their entertainment. I have researched my conversational gambits and have some of the right words but not necessarily in the right order.

Blimey, a narrowboat has just turned up!
