Marne river, Paris and up the Seine

Posting this blog has taken a while. It has been a busy time aboard Antiope hosting friends from New Zealand and cruising from Epernay to Paris and up the Seine to the navigable limit at Nogent-sur-Seine.  As I write from our mooring in a quiet backwater, the infant Seine river tumbles over the barrage mere metres away, on its journey to Paris and the sea.

The young Seine runs through Nogent

Nogent-sur-Seine lock. We reach the navigable head of the Seine

From Epernay we cruised down the Marne river through the Champagne region, vineyards stretching over the hills to the horizon.

In Paris we became tourists for a few days. Although we have been here twice before, there is always more to see and experience. Still our favourite stop

We queue to visit Versailles palace
