French River Cruising

  Part 1
 My cabin in chaos.  It's late afternoon - I've yet to unpack.  It's lifeboat drill and early dinner is 6.15pm
 As our captain says 'Ladies and yentle men out beautiful chip Braemar where a year last Christmas I broke my arm learning the slow foxtrot.  Don't worry boys - I shall keep my promise not to dance.
 Our first port of call - lovely Honfleur.  a classic French experience.  A casual coffee where my French was understood.  Helping a fellow passenger buy pyjamas - apparently he had forgotten them and then an aperitif watching the boats bobbing and the world go by- with a delicious lunch to look forward to.

I can think no nicer 'first port of call' to get you in the mood for the delights to come!

Keith: It turned out to be my favourite.

Kim: just a black and blue shin.

Parsnip: hopefully those days are over. Everything crossed.

Next time no damage at all. Nice ship too.
