After Oktoberfest we met with Kris and Carolyn to formalize our plans for France. Dave prepared a big ol’ packet of information for us to mull over while having breakfast at Uncle Louie’s Cafe (your typical breakfast diner – lots of food and coffee, quick , efficient and somewhat brusque service – it’s a Duluth classic).
Dave prepared a couple of different sample itineraries, a weather page showing the average weather in the three areas we were considering, and he had a catalog from Le Boat showing all their routes and boats. So many choices. OMG how do we decide? Well, after 4 hours of deliberation we finally picked our route, our dates and our boat. We put a down payment on our boat and reserved our dates. Now we just have to find some decent airfare.
