Having arrived on Piedaleau on Weds 8th Sept we went to Veurne on Friday to join Andy and Grainne on JoNi for the DBA rally weekend.
There is an annual Dutch Barg Association rally – we attended one in Ghent 3 years ago …. but obviousl last year it was cancelled because of Covid. At Veurne there were 22 boats and about 50 attendees. The organisers had to be careful regarding the activities provided and the weather was a little unkind at times …. but it was great fun none the less. We got to meet up with friends and fellow boaters which made life seem almost normal again! Needless to say there was much eating and drinking and sharing of boaty type escapades and stories.
We shared a bottle of Champers with Andy, Pat and Grainne (aka Boozey Boaters) on JoNi to celebrate our nuptials.
We returned to Piedaleau on the Monday morning and I vowed to stay off the booze for a while ….. but the continuing saga of the starter battery didn’t help my will power! Hey ho!
