A Sunny Day in Douai
Sunday 2nd June - Douai

Penny and Bob always seem to bring the weather with them.  Admittedly last time they stayed with us gales lashed the boat mercilessly for four days, making venturing outside folly, but never the less the sunshine that accompanies them kept us all rosy cheeked and toasty warm inside the boat while the storm raged beyond.   This despite the fact that we’d all intended to cruise a for a bit, but not for the first time in their company had our plans thwarted.

Therefore, when they enquired as to our whereabouts in the hope of spending the last hours of their European adventure with us, it didn’t take very long at all for us to decide that travelling later in the week with the big ships might be fun after all, rather than leaving today when there were none, and we should once again delay our departure.

This time when we met them at the station the weather was already matching their dispositions, and while we did our best to catch up on all of the news as we made our way back from the station, even taking the more circuitous scenic route, we couldn’t help but get the feeling that the one night they could spare was not going to be enough to say all that had to be said, let alone to hear all that had to be heard.
