Moret-sur-Loing was left on the 30th of June. We thought we had loads of time, because we were supposed to arrive in Paris only on the 7th of July. So we decided to cruise upstream and see what the Petit Seine looks like. Well we only made it to Bray-sur-Seine (engine problems again) and turned towards Paris in order not to arrive too late because of expected visitors. We were in Paris in time and stayed for 9 days in Paris’ Arsenal, longer than planned. (Guess why.) The two engineers there were 100% crap we have to say – avoid them. We paid an arm and a leg to both the harbour and the engineers and ended up with… nothing. Besides we were unable to visit Paris, because the engineers told us time and again ‘j’arrive’. They lied. Anyway, after we left on the 16th of July we entered the river Oise at Conflans-Sainte-Honorine and stayed at Pontoise for another 3 weeks for a well known reason… An engineer from England visited us briefly which gave us enough courage to continue. So we finished l’Oise and continued with the river Aisne upstream going eastbound just after Compiègne. When the river is no longer navigable she becomes the Canal latéral à l'Aisne, followed by the Canal des Ardennes. The latter ends up into the river Meuse. Not after having had severe engine-trouble, again, we entered La Meuse at Pont-à-Bar on the 15th of August, at 3:09PM to be precise. This part of the season took us 1½ months.
