Join us on our travels around Europe aboard our Dutch Tjalk Francoise

    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

St Seine Vingeanne to Oisilly. Sat 4/10–Sun 5/10

Posted by contentedsouls on 11/10/2015

10 locks, 15km

After Debs and Kevin left us we stayed one more day. Muttley needed a rest after his visit from Herbie.


Also I wanted to have lunch at the cute little restaurant at Montigny – it had great write ups on Trip Advisor too. Hmm, they clearly had the same difficulties as us re finding fresh produce. The atmosphere was good as was the service but …..

After lunch we had a look around the village of S S Vingeanne itself – the only one I hadn’t previously explored.


Sunday morning we pulled pins for Oisilly. A pretty, sunny and pleasantly uneventful journey.


Oisilly is one of those middle of nowhere moorings where we could all sit about in the sun without anyone to worry or worry us. We were, therefore, a bit surprised when this gang turned up for a bit of training.


Changing  the subject completely; I tried to put a comment on Sue No Problem’s blog today and received an ‘error message 403’. It said that my actions were considered to be hostile and that I had been banned for previous malicious behaviour!!!!?

    Oh Jill, what have you done to Sue and Vic then? must have been pretty malicious to get banned! Come on Sue, spill the beans…


    • I don’t know, but it wasn’t deliberate your honour! She has told me that I’ve been swapping IP numbers – I don’t know what that means but it doesn’t sound that extreme in the scheme of life. She gave me something to put me on ‘the good person list’ – wow; beats a sonic screwdriver lol
