Last night Becky and Dave provided accommodation and food on board their houseboat Wanderlust. A gracious couple and was nice to speak English.
We headed off in our own directions. Them Avignon and me, the local post office. I made the front cover in the La Provence newspaper and wanted to send some copies home.
I walked around Aramon. It is a beautiful little village with a few nice places to sit and have a coffee.
Had a kebab. Well a different type of kebab. A baguette with kebab and French fries all put together.
After a bit of writing and relaxation, I headed back to the Helios. It is a small houseboat hotel. Hocine invited me as his guest. Thus a free room for the night.
Hocine is a good man. We shared coffee, cake and a good talk.
He took a group of youth for survival training and has a heart for people.
The wind is blowing, either from the north or south. A great opportunity to wash and dry clothes.
Hocine told me that I came to visit him for a purpose.
Claude paddled by. I met him a couple of weeks ago further North in those crazy canals with hundreds of locks. He has paddled from Lille and his final destination is Lille au Grau-du-Roi, on the edge of the Mediterranean. We talked a bit, hugged and wished each other safe travels. People, places and possibilities pass our way each day. The journey continues. Together we are better.
