2nd - 8th June

John Liley at the helm
A long week cruising! We returned from the top of the Canal de Bourgogne to the Canal du Nivernais, passing through many locks and achieving over 90km in a week! The sun was really out and beamed down on the rolling Burgundy hills.  The trip down the Burgundy has been much enjoyed, however it is nice to be back on the Nivernais, the route which we love so much.

Owner and father of the Luciole, John Liley also joined with his sons. Who came to see her cruise the Burgundy Canal - Something thats not been done on the Luciole for over 12 years and resurfaced some old memories. John the father of hotel barging is a canal celebrity,  his involvement developing hotel barging and thus keeping many of the canals in France alive, meaning he is well respected within the community.
