Nights were spent on a small ship with 10 very cramped cabins. Each day we would cycle a stretch of the 250 kilometre cycle path. The ship would steam ahead and we would find it moored at one of the charming villages along the river. This is really the best way to do a week's cycling holiday. One does not have to cart all one's luggage on the bicycle. A simple meal and a fairly comfortable bed awaits one in the evenings. There was not a lot of sketching time as we had to meet time deadlines but here are a few I managed to complete.

|A rainy day along the river . The shapes of this industrial site fascinated me.|
|This was a really quaint very old Town Council building. It was higgledy piggledy and totally charming.|
