French Hotel Barge EMMA - Winter Wonderland

Liz, from the French Hotel Barge EMMA which cruises the canal du midi in the south of France, wrote to us Monday and sent us this beautiful and unusual photo.

French Hotel Barge EMMA, canal du midi, South of France

Hello everyone. Here is a photo of Emma which I never thought would be possible, especially in March. We have had a downfall of snow which is really beautiful but totally unexpected. On Friday we were in T-shirts finishing the little painting details and enjoying a glass of wine at the end of the day. Today it will be hot soup and hot toddies, dressed in woolies. Hope winter is being kind to you and that spring is just around the corner. Amitiés Liz
We remember the winter that we spent in Frontignan with Liz and Rene when they had a small motor boat. It was cold winter.  We had ice on the chemin de halage that we used to ride our bikes on to go shopping, but never SNOW!

I hope the pink flamingoes toes didn't turn blue... maybe they have socks.

Emma's calendar is really filling up, but there is still some availability. How about a barging vacation that will encompass the Bastille Day (July 14th) festivities? The French have beautiful fireworks, plus they know how to throw a party! EMMA is also open for Fête de la Musique (June 21st) which is great fun.
