Snail's Pace

Life on the water is supposed to be slower, calmer and more relaxed. Unlike last summer, it has been uneventful so far this year.

Two weeks ago we ventured down the Saone River to Chalons-sur-Saone with stops at Seurre and Gergy.

We sat on the terrace of a cafe and watched the above escargot try to find his way into the kitchen; we fed swans, we saw some interesting houses from the river, and as always, met some interesting people along the way.

When we got back to home base we wandered into the neighborhood bar and had a bottle, or few, of wine. Pictured are, from left to right: Captain Bruce, Captain Dave, Jean-Michelle the owner of the bar, the Mank and the Yank.
