Description

You go rabbiting in Oxfordshire, tie up among the bankers in the City of London, live among history in Flanders, drift through Champagne, throw a rope around the Eiffel Tower, struggle with hostile life forms in Burgundy, float down the Saone from vineyard to vineyard, get swept along by the terrible Rhone from Lyon to Avignon, dip your toes in the Mediterranean, and sail across inland seas among the flamingos of the Camargue. The style takes a little getting used to but once you're over that, it's a fantastic read and very funny.

Following the publication of Narrow Dog to Carcassonne , Terry, his wife Monica, and their whippet Jim planned to sail the Phyllis May down the Intracoastal Waterway from Virginia to Florida--an adventure which, should they survive it, will be the subject of their next book, Narrow Dog to Indian River , coming from Delta in 2009.wasted pages trying to colorize a not very interesting trip - one in which the authors didn't seem to enjoy. So a good book, a good read, very much recommended, in the mould of the other classics mentioned here, but not quite achieving the same status. On the floor of the Star Inn Jim was fighting to push his entire body inside a bag of pork scratchings. You’ll visit the France nobody knows—the backwaters of Flanders, the canals beneath Paris, and the forbidden routes to the wine-dark Mediterranean Sea. You visit the France nobody knows - the backwaters of Flanders, the canals beneath Paris, the heavenly Yonne, the lost Burgundy Canal, the islands of the Saône, and the forbidden ways to the Mediterranean.

When they retired, Terry Darlington and his somewhat saner wife Monica--together with their dog, a whippet named Jim--chucked their earthbound life and set out in an utterly unseaworthy sixty-foot canal narrowboat across the notoriously treacherous English Channel and down to the South of France.I feel I am travelling with them all, the humorous comments are so clever, yet so simple, just a couple of words sometimes. You meet the French nobody meets - poets, captains, historians, drunks, bargees, men with guns, scholars, madmen - they all want to know the people on the painted boat and their narrow dog. Jim looked out of his kennel, his eyes wide-He begged me Your Honour, Steal my bone; he went down on his hands and knees. Last year I read The Narrowboat Summer and was delighted with it and the wonderful relaxing sense of moving slowly down a canal in a narrow boat.
