Then look no further!
After reading this book I just had to drop'these people' an e-mail. These people being Terry, the author, Monica, his long suffering wife and Jim, the opinionated and whimsical whippet.
And here's what's great; I got a return e-mail the following day telling me of the next forthcoming book to be set in Florida, again on their narrow boat, The Phylis May.
Back to the book in hand though...
Narrow dog to Carcassone is to date one of the funniest reads this year. Terry is a retired (but never retiring) reluctant adventure-seeker. After a rash decision to take the Phylis May across the channel, Terry is filled with a mixture of fear, regret and obligation. He has told people of his plans, who in turn have told more people... a.s.o.!
Their adventure as they travel across the channel and down through France are a must read. Terry's humour is second to none and his wife Monica has to be admired. And Jim, well read this book for yourselves and make your own minds up.
Bytheway, my sister snaffled my copy so quickly that I'm unable to give you the desired quotes... If you do get this book, I'll be surprised if you're disappointed.
One last word, you don't have to be a pensioner to appreciate this rib-tickling yarn.

Bantam Narrow Dog to Carcassonne

`We could bore ourselves to death, drink ourselves to death, or have a bit of an ... more

adventure...` When they retired, Terry and Monica
Darlington decided to sail their canal narrow boat
across the Channel and down to the Mediterranean,
together with their whippet Jim. They took advice
from experts, who said they would die, together
with their whippet Jim. On the Phyllis May, you
dive through six-foot waves in the Channel, are
swept down the terrible Rhone, and fight for your
life in a storm among the flamingos of the
Camargue. You meet the French nobody meets -
poets, captains, historians, drunks, bargees, men
with guns, scholars, madmen - they all want to
know the people on the painted boat and their
narrow dog. You visit the France nobody knows -
the backwaters of Flanders, the canals beneath
Paris, the heavenly Yonne, the lost Burgundy
Canal, the islands of the Saone, and the forbidden
ways to the Mediterranean. Aliens, dicks, trolls,
vandals, gongoozlers, killer fish and the walking
dead all stand between our three innocents and
their goal - many-towered Carcassonne.
