Here we are back in Charleville-
We took Waterdog to Bogny-
So our 3rd period of cruising started in late August and ended at our home mooring in September. We went from scorching summer to cool rain very suddenly with the start of September but the sunshine returned after a week to give a nice early October. By early September it seemed that most of the cruising boats had gone home and we saw very little boat traffic compared to July and August. As we were returning back down the River Meuse we decided to only stop at places that we hadn't been to before on our journey up the river. We stopped at a short quay in a beautiful stretch of river at Laifour where there was only one small boat moored. Within an hour there were 5 boats tied up, all enjoying the lovely warm evening air. A pretty tjalk tied up outside us and they put their bow davit to really good use. They had a rag doll cat which was happy to stay in and on the boat all the time and can be seen in the right hand picture sitting on the mast weight.
