Well 2019 did not really work out as we had intended. We had to keep changing our plans & we seem to have spent almost as long in the boatyard, up in the air, as actually cruising! Our bank balance has certainly taken a big hit!
We did, however, really enjoy our time on the Somme and intend to return there again. It was also nice to return to Bruges and old friends for a little R & R before returning home.
