We were pleased to be taking part in the Rally at Dijon at the beginning of June. It was lovely to see the Quai full of magnificent barges although the inhabitants were sometimes not as welcoming.......!! However we had a good time and were pleased to meet up with our friends on their barges, and we made new friends too!
Puddle Stone nestled up with other much bigger barges on the quayside.
This little lad turned up most days and was rewarded with a lollipop!
Maggie and Nigel and (of course Tashi the dog) from Gesina joined us for a BBQ one evening.
We took part in a Boules competition
There was a rowing race around the island in the harbour.
And the Pompiers gave us a demo on how to rescue a drowning person, I do however, have my doubts that she would have lived as in true French style they took her clothes off before doing anything else.....!!
This barge's name caused much merriment though I think perhaps 'Daryl' didn't find it so funny...!!
Our good friends from Tesserae won the Boules competition, though someone was heard to say that they tried to swing it for one of the regulars to win...!!
