San Luis Obispo, California
Armida is out of he water and we are at home - hardly a cliffhanger but the end of our cruising season. We enjoyed our cruise back from Besancon and some very social times at the marina in between cleaning, tidying and laundry. We stayed in a B&B for the last couple of days before a quick dash to the airport.
This year was a lot of up and down the river with only a little time on the canals. This shows up in the numbers:
Engine Hours: 157
1Kilometres Travelled: 1081
Number of Locks: 94
Compared with 2012 when we did twice as many engine hours, only 300km more and 300 more locks.
Terry likes the river cruising as it is more leisurely and has less locks. I like the canals as it is more intimate and there is something new around every corner. We both agree that we still love the life and will aren’t yet ready to give it up.
So tune in next season and find out if Terry gets sick of locks or if Rob falls asleep on the rivers but be assured that Rosie and Lilou will have a good time no matter what.
