Au Revoir, Alaskans

Alaska Flag
Flying the colors!

We arrived in Auxerre yesterday and had to sadly say au revoir to our Alaskan family, John and Christin. They did the entire Canal Du Nivernais  with us (180 Km and 110 locks), in rain and sun, locking up and locking down, through tunnels and cases and cases of wine. We got a personal tour of a 16th century chateau, drove through three tunnels, toured innumerable churches (including the basilica in Vezelay), ate lots of snails,  saw a guy in a restaurant probably die and then come back to life because he hadn’t ordered lunch.

We saw them safely to the Gare Auxerre. The fledgelings have left the nest and are on to Paris for further adventures!

Salade Alaska

But we found something at the supermarché to remember them by.
