17th - 24th August 2013

The film gang of last week returned to respective homes and the Luciole crew scattered on their holidays.  Francisco to the Atlantic Ocean, Mike to the Alps, Neil to the Morvan Forest, Anna to the UK to prepare for travels to China and Tom to the sunny climes of Cheshire in the north of England. The Luciole was left in the hands of the ladies, Suzie and Penny!

The Luciole was moored on her smart new town mooring in Auxerre, the mid-seasons spruce-up began. Varnishing, painting, oiling with some rest and repose thrown in.  'OC' Roy our dear painter friend was on hand with masterly skills various and Scottish humour to boot.

On Friday night the crew returned refreshed and ready for the last months of the season.  September, is nearly upon us and always feels a different season.  Summer is slipping by and the wine makers of the Burgundy region, prepare for harvest, with the hopes of a fruitful vintage.
