In Paris

It is always a delight to arrive in Paris by boat, however we are late in the season this year and our favourite mooring place 'The Arsenal' is filling up with boats booked in for the Winter, we take our chances and get lucky with a very short term berth.

 'Pont Neuf' ,we have arrived
My Son Toby and Grand daughters, Holly and Charlotte.

It was great to be able to cruise through Paris with the family aboard, up from NZ in the School hols.

A must see in Paris, The Opera 

Another must, is the Atrium in Gallerie Lafeyette

We take a cruise through the St Martin canal, the back door to Paris

The Stade de France, alongside the Canal st Martin

Marking time for a couple of days waiting for our slot in the Arsenal, we cruised downstream a few Kms to moor at Isle des impressionnistes. This was where Monet, Degas, Renoir and the like came to paint, drink wine and entertain their ladies. A magic tranquil place.

One of many restored craft in the boatshed.
Leaving Toby and the girls to visit Disneyland we head off on the last leg of our season's cruise back upstream to Migennes on the Yonne river.
