Not many in late middle age realise their dream of living on a canal boat and exploring the waterways of France. Even fewer anticipate the problems that might confront them on their adventure into 'the unknown'. Valerie and Geoffrey buy their boat which they christen "de Villehardouin" and set off on the Canal du Midi, drawing and writing about their journey as they meander along the two hundred year old canal. They revel in the slow pace as they enter a world of welcoming ports, canalside markets, ancient sites and chateaux, delicate wildflowers and, in the Camargue, medieval jousting and pink flamingos. The various regional cuisines introduce them to gastronomic delights and memorable wines. Tackling the mighty Rhône River with its awesome deep locks in their small boat presents a challenge. Valerie and Geoffrey accept this with their usual humour. Once the Rhône is conquered, they find time to enjoy the ever-changing scenery of the canals as the dream unfolds.

This book begins with an outline of the history and geography of inland navigation, starting with a broad view and then narrowing to focus on the rivers and canals of France. An overview of canal types is followed by an examination of the various styles of locks found in France and their different modes of operation. A section touches on some of the many types of boat that have worked these waterways through the centuries and how they were used. This is followed by a look at the variety of current vessels suitable for cruising in France, such as modern motor cruisers, replicas of classic barge designs and converted ex-commercial barges. A large section gives hands-on detail of and insights into the search for, and the selection of a classic Dutch barge in the Netherlands. There are many details on making an offer, commissioning a survey, contracting the purchase, doing a major refit and then taking the barge southward into France. The meat of the book is in the sections dealing with actually cruising through the inland waterways of France. Here will be found both overviews and details on the broad variety of cruising waters. Much of the detail in this four hundred page section is taken from our cruising logs, condensed, edited and illustrated with photos we have shot along the way. The intent of this narrative is to give the reader a flavour of what it is like cruising these waters and it is by no means meant as a definitive guide, but rather as sketches of some of the things that are possible.
