La Baise
I’ve just found this… and I’m glad he’s not travelling with us
To be fair – there’s some interesting operational detail – in amongst the kiwi myopia!  But I can absolutely promise you lot that I will definitely NOT be handing out little black flags or silver fern lapel pins…

And here’s another one – serious cruisers this time – and an interesting segment on Agen (she spells it Argen) and the Baise – all the way to Valence sur Baise… and they do it every year!


Ickham to Agen – in Comfort…

P's new ride...
Just like the Captain
– really – it is… Allways thinking of his crew…

Nice new Saab 9-5 Aero Estate. Metalic steel grey sir? Not a problem…  Ready for mid-June sir? Weeeelllll… maybe…


Back to the Question…

OVER a Bridge?
Do we turn Left – or do we turn Right?
  I must say – this picture has been drawing me in… I’ve done a lot of boating – but I’ve never driven a boat OVER a bridge before…

David tells me that the ladies at LocaBoat recommended the Baise… so I’ve collected a few pictures and a map – here…  I’ll try and get a bit more information together. What are your thoughts?

Blow Up (the) Truck?
It would appear that France has made a commemorative souvenir of our first trip.

I’ve ordered 10,000 pieces so you can circulate them amongst your friends…  Bring your own coloured pencils.


A Wandering Mind…

Wandering...
I’m writing a fishing story, but ‘focus’ is the problem! Memories of my first marlin catch (and premature release!) Other thoughts creep in. Do we turn left or right at Agen?  Then I found this. The Baise is interesting! You guys talk amongst yourselves – I’ll get back to my fish…


Just in case you wanted to know this…
