That’ll do

In the north of England, principally Yorkshire, but also Lancashire, that’ll do is a commonly head saying that means ‘that’s good’ or ‘that’s enough’ or many local variations on a similar theme. As we pull into our final mooring for the year, St Jean de Losne, we both uttered the words that’ll do.

2021 cruise – done

We still have another couple of weeks aboard Anticus which will include our visit to the Salon Fluvial in St Jean. Over the next couple of posts we will review the Salon and look back at the highlights of our summer, but for now to mark the end of our cruising, here are a few facts and figures of our journey:

  1. Love the blogs. Look forward to more when you next continue your canal perambulations. In the meantime hope to meet in London when we are back October and November. Putting my boat to bed too and removing the barnacles. Delivering to Lyman Morse in Thomaston , Maine, early October, dodging Maine offshore lobster pots on the way South.

    Just finished the Piper Event at Henley. Enjoy yours at St Jean.
