Down the Hole: Alsace 2014

Alsace Lorraine was the destination for 2014, with a combination of local cuisine (German food as cooked by the French), lighter white wines and forested countryside. Things didn’t go off per the original plan, with some fast rework required due to a canal closure. It all came together, though, and we had a great time.

Inglourious Bastides: Aquitaine 2017

Southern France and the Canal Lateral a la Garonne was the destination in 2017. Our dirty dozen, on three boats, cruised from Castelsarrasin west to Le Mas d’Aginais. We took a side trip up the River Baise to Nerac, finding out just why it’s necessary to pull in the fenders while in narrow locks!

Rollin on the River: Thames 2019

2019 was a good year to travel, ahead of the coming Covid 19 pandemic. Our intrepid crew spent a week on a leisurely trip down the river toward London. Rowing races, great estates, dinner on the bank looking at Windsor Castle and plenty of pubs made for a lovely time.
