    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

The rest of Damery

The whole area here is immensely pretty. The fallow fields are now bursting into colour with wild flowers – the department of the Marne actually gives wild flower seeds to the farmers to scatter (what a brilliant idea) and the tubs on the bridges are all planted up.


I couldn’t help but think canine red light district at this poodle parlour – or, ‘how much is that doggy in the window?’. Also need to be out of the area before the adoption event – we do not need additional crew!


This big, flashy house with enormous lawns had a bigger than life size red metallic painted bull in the garden – now what is that about?


The usual bits of art work around the village and a lovely sunset rounded off our two night stay (with free electric and water).
