Along with 20 others, I spent last week canal cruising in France. The 22-guest Anne-Marie took us from Sete to Arles on a beautiful journey that none of us wanted to see come to an end.

Ten of us also participated in a four-day pre-tour from Paris through the Perigord region of France to Sete. I’ll be posting a  story about our adventure next week. For now, I’m posting a few photos to give you a taste of our trip.

That’s it for now. I’ll be posting more next week.
