I name this ship… Weekly Photo Challenge

Well, not so much a ship, more a boat really…

dscf1492-001Our barge was already named when we bought her, but we loved the name, and anyway it’s supposed to be bad luck to change a boat’s name.  ‘Desormais’ means ‘from now on’ … ‘henceforward’…

But it was a big step up from the boat we had before which we named ‘de nada’ – meaning ‘You’re welcome’.


And here are some more boat names from our travels in France, bringing happy memories of old friends we met along the way…

Happy New Year!

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

  2. This makes me smile, Sandra, thinking of the lovely day we spent with you two on Desormais.

    Nice shots!


  4. Growing up around boats, I have always loved to see what people name them. ‘Boat people’ seem to come up with the most fascinating names for their water transportation.
    This is my first time visiting your blog that I discovered on Friday Fictioneers and I hope to do a bit more exploring in the coming days.
    I hope you will visit my blog too as I am just newly back into blogging after taking a few years off to raise my little ones, and I could use a comment and or follow too 🙂
