Rhone Country

The Saone river to Lyon, where Ken, Kristine and Eddie picked up Mark and Mark and met up with the Rhone river. Vineyards only on the right bank, Condrieu, Hermitage in the north, Saint Joseph in the mid valley, and Chateauneuf du Pape in the south. Tasted them all. Spent a night in Avignon, the city of the Popes. Went through deepest French lock.

Oslo Fjord

Sailed up the Oslo fjord to the Aker Brygge, the castle of Oslo and long time Norwegian friends. Great performance by Blackhawk and Jamie, dancing by the Norwegians, and a great week in Oslo. Remember it can snow any day in Norway!
