 Where are we? 

We are on Anja at the top of the Canal du Nord, in Northern France.

Where have we come from and where are we next headed?

We finally got away from Migennes when the serious flooding subsided. We were 17 days late on our schedule and so, have rushed quickly North using the current in the Yonne and Seine rivers to assist. This has got us back onto schedule. We have still been able to visit some new places. However we are very familiar with those areas we have skipped through.

This year, we will be heading North. We loved the Somme Valley and river a few years ago and returned there this year travelling up and down, 192Kms. We will also re-visit Lille, Douai and places on the route. We will head to Dunkerque and get as close as we can to Ypres. The bottom SW corner of Belgium is about the only part of Belgium that we have not yet visited.
