French Hotel Barge EMMA has had a Spring Clean

Back in February, Liz and Rene took EMMA to the boatyard for inspection, and also her pre-season Spring clean.  It must have been quite nippy to do this in February, but as they had plans to participate in the Rally of the Gazelles in Morocco in March, there wasn't really any better time with their 2010 barging charter season beginning 3rd April.

Here's a photo of EMMA going back into the water after her 2-week spa treatment :)  Doesn't she look fabulous!

Here's a note from Liz...
Hello everyone, we are just about to go back into the water after having been out in dry dock for the last 2 weeks. Our bottom has been well scrubbed and the Expert has been and given us the thumbs up for another 10 years, which is brilliant considering Emma is 105 years old and needs nothing replaced. (Hope René and I end up in the same condition) We are all painted, new bathroom floors are down and we are just gorgeous, and looking forward to welcoming your lovely clients aboard in this new season.

Amitiés Liz
