La Renaissance:
Day-by-Day Cruise Diary

From: A Barge Cruise in France

Dutch tugboat VAN SPEYK

Thursday: Canal du Loing

On Thursday, we encountered the converted Dutch tugboat Van Speyk again--not just once, but twice. (Later in the day, we ran into the couple who owned the boat on the towpath, and we had a nice conversation on our way back to our respective vessels.)
