We had a quiet couple of weeks in Baûme-les-Dames when Mike was working hard putting down
the Tek-Dek covering on the aft deck; a tricky and tedious job that required patience and exactitude,
but the end result was well worth the effort. A surprise visit came next from Peter and Penny from S Africa,
which gave us a lovely mini-break. Sometime boat-swappers on the Shannon with our previous 10m cruiser
and their English narrow boat on the Grand Union Canal at Braunston, they were driving through Europe
in their camper van.
Then off again to Besançon to meet up with our elder daughter, her husband and two of our grandchildren
who joined us for a week of scorching weather as far as Montbéliard. Lovely to catch up with them,
enjoy playing with the children, relax and sightsee together, but too short. Grandchildren are great fun.
