This is it until May 2009 and the return of the blog. Our plans for next summer are already made.
We join a colourful flotilla of 55 traditional wooden sailing boats and progress with them as stately as Snail can through Gent, Brugges, Ostend and briefly into France. We are very aware that we are not trad or wooden or sailing but the organiser is Fernand (he who rescued us at the start of these wanderings) and he has invited us so that's alright then.
In June we leave them and take Snail to the Netherlands and some very different waterways. So, bye for now.
