Violets on the 5th of June
September This has nothing to do with cruising, of where we are, or what we do. It’s about flowers. We do have four flower-boxes on top of our boat. (Five in the past.

So from now on: 5th of November, 3rd of December, 7th of January, 4th of February and 1st of April. Thanks for following us – we hope we have been able to create some amusement for you.
