Winter in Auxerre
The Luciole sleeps below the snow covered cathedral, as Burgundy slows down in winter's icy grip. Inside, the Luciole still holds her warmth as she waits for Spring. When the barge will be given her pre-season refit ready for another year of laughs and smiles.

A change of scenery - in Chamonix, below Mont Blanc
With fresh snow covering France; Francisco, Penny and I took the chance for a short break in Chamonix.  Francisco learnt to ski in a day, progressing from nursery to red runs by the end of our trip! The off-piste ski-ing was amazing, fresh powder every morning.  It was a great break from office work for Mum and I, planning and preparation for the season continues more than ever when the boat is not operating.
