About 15 years ago my late husband and I sailed on the Thames on a barge from Windsor to Oxford. It was an eight-passenger vessel, but only six were on board.

Our fellow passengers were a couple of retired British military officers and a couple from Kentucky. The weather delightful and while our cabin was small, it was a great week of great vistas, great conversations (lasting ’til late at night,) and marvelous food and drink..

At the end of the month a friend and I will sail on the barge L’Impressioniste, through the canals of Burgundy. I am looking forward to it. European Waterways ( is the same firm which organized the Thames trip, and this itinerary looks lovely.

Follow me and I’ll share the experience with all of you.
