Aboard Renaissance: Final thoughts on cruise

ABOARD RENAISSANCE- Rain dampened the deck, streets and roads but not our memories as we hugged the crew and piled into our trusty van with deck man, driver, guide and captain-in-training Arnald Poussin for the three hour-drive to Paris. More hugs as he dropped us of at European Waterways’ Paris meeting center, Hotel Westminster. Just […]

Aboard Renaissance: Briare

ABOARD RENAISSANCE-The weather gods seemed to be exacting their due as we woke in Briare to gray skies that threatened rain.

Three […]

Aboard Renaissance: A visit to the famous faience factory in Gien

ABOARD RENAISSANCE-Cannot believe how fortunate we are weather-wise. Predictions had been for cool temperatures for one sunny day between rain and clouds. Instead it has been warm and sunny. All the better to sun and lunch on the foredeck. We have been alternating morning excursions one day with afternoon ones the next. Quite civilized, especially […]

Aboard American Empress: If it’s Friday, it must be Kennewick – or Pasco, or Richland

ABOARD AMERICAN EMPRESS-This was our last day on ilch’eeahwana, the local Native American word meaning “the big river.”  (Sounds like “ill-cheat-gee-wanna.”) The American Empress is parked in Richland at the confluence of the Columbia and the Snake Rivers, and unfortunately I didn’t learn the local word for the Snake. The exact point where this union […]

Aboard Renaissance: Visiting Chateau Sully-Sur-Loire

ABOARD RENAISSANCE-The church bells of Montbouy woke us all at 7 a.m. and after breakfast we piled into the van for the drive to the Castle – or Chateau, the French use the terms interchangeably – of Sully-Sur-Loire, built and built on from 1000 A.D.
