Hotel barge cruise in France, weekly blog about all inclusive vacation on the canal
Wednesday, 27 August 2014
17th - 23rd August
The Luciole crew were happy to welcome on board Nancy and Mike, their two daughters, KC and Kamin, son-in-laws Frank and Matt, and six lovely grandchildren for a week full of celebrations and firsts. We toasted to Mike and Nancy's 50th wedding anniversary, Frank and KC's 9th wedding anniversary and to our youngest ever pilots Maggie and Matthew, only 3 and 4 years old, who sweetly joined Captain Cisco at the helm of our mighty barge!
Lots of 'Little Captainettes' on the Luciole this week
We were also joined for the week by chef Damien visiting our regular Chef Marc and together they produced a plethora of celebration cakes and meals for both the younger and elder generations to enjoy. They were frequently visited in the galley by Matt and his daughter Maddie, age 10, who took great interest in the culinary prowess of our chefs. Tom aided in the loading and unloading of bicycles and our very special trailer for the little ones between locks when the family would head off along the towpath to enjoy the scenic lanes along the Nivernais canal.
