IMG_0053We left at ten o’clock after getting fueled up at the marina and got in here, after just doing two locks and 35 kms, at 2.30 p.m. It will be about the same distance to Liege and we shall be there tomorrow afternoon. If I can accomplish my sleuth job, in Liege, by Friday then we should be in Maastricht for the weekend. A cold wind blows from the south but so far no rain. I left my Nikon camera on the Thalys Train but it had an address tag and I have sent an e-mail to the Thalys people. So, now you and I will be entertained with videoes from Ce Ce’s brand new I-Pad. One of the videoes is of the Saint Sulpice church. A French lady I accosted for directions out of a metro station led us there.  She also showed us where Catherine Deneuve lives, across from the church.

When in Paris on Monday there was an exhibit from the national forestry association and they had about 8 foot high live specimens of most common French trees in their exhibit. And I now have a definite identification for the tree that I asked you to help me with. It turns out to be a common Ash (Fraxinus). I never had an inkling that this is the predominant species along the rivers I visited from the Med to the Belgian border.

Well, back to the directions on how to put a video on the blog.

Ik zoek help voor het vinden van een goede artiest die het boek omslag voor de “De Mastmakersdochters” kan ontwerpen. Kunt U mij helpen?
