1st - 7th September 2013

This week we saw a great group of people from all corners of the world. Americans, English and Australians joined us in this mixed group and enjoyed a week we won't soon forget on the Luciole. Great weather was had and many laughs shared as the group got to know each other.

A special event also brought us all together from behind the lens of multiple cameras. The biannual crossing of the horses to and from their island grazing at the lock of Vaux took place. Due to the particular size and shape of the Luciole we provide the easiest and safest method for lock-keeper Olivier to transport his two magnificent horses across the lock and onto the otherwise unreachable pastures. It creates quite the spectacle and is an amazing sight as the boat rocks and wallows under the weight of all that horse.

A special mention must be made to the charming Don and lovely Kelli who were celebrating their honeymoon with us. Congratulations from all of us and here's hoping to many, many  years of happiness to the both of you.
