Spring in Auxerre

Francisco - hammer in one hand - umbrella in the other!
Spring on the Luciole and crew and friends are helping with the refit for the coming season.  The guys are busy with two new bathrooms, complete re-paint of the barge, inside and out and numerous other improvements. Francisco swapped South African sun for rain and an umbrella, with some serious steel preparation before painting.

For the girls, it was curtain making for the cabins - rather a lot of curtains - 20 of them in fact!  A real production line for Ann, Loeloe and Penny.   All ready now to co-ordinate with the new French, Olivier Deforges bed linen.

The ladies are busy with the cabin curtains
We did all take a break from work to celebrate Neil's birthday.  Cake, served in the galley was enjoyed by one and all, which included a line up of a Brazilian, Chilean, Scot, 4 from England and two visiting Dutchmen!
