Delightful Dole 

We are now spending a few days in Dole. The town moorings are against a sloping concrete bank with steps, thank goodness for our mega board which means we can all get to land.  Dole itself is beautiful with an amazing church and pretty streets.  I found enough shops to keep me happy. No shoes this time just a couple of dresses and some ahem undies.  Oh and a gorgeous bracelet I’ve been after for ages.  The floating pizza takeaway was very handy being just 100m down the riverfront.

Today we took a drive out and ended up in Osselle where we visited the grotto.  It was amazing. 

We came across some bears … fake and real …

Apparently there were bats but they were hiding!  The whole experience was surreal and took nearly two hours, definitely worth €8 each.

  1. Lovely photos again Debbie, I never seed to get underground shots to look right, but that’s my problem.
    How did you get Kevin to dress up in that Bear suit then? I take it he WAS dressed up…(Sorry Kevin, couldn’t resist it).

    Hi Debbie and Kevin,

    you’ve probably left delightful Dôle by now, and progressing nicely on your journey to get to ???

    Hope you had the chance to visit the beautiful dutch barge that was moored alongside the Belgian barge behind you.
    It’s owner, named Jos, an ex-Rhine tankerbarge captain/owner, had the “Kaïros” build for him by a dutch owned yard in Roumania, it cost an arm and a leg, and big bags full of money, but it’s very nice and also very comfortable.

    Continue enjoying your cruise.
