The intense summer heat made us of dream of the light snowfall around the port last winter. It had been hot almost everyday since June and being cold became a vague memory and something that we looked forward to feeling again.
We had planned to return to Roanne early, pack up the car and finish our summer vacation in Italy, but somehow time drifted away and that never happen. Instead, Roanne welcomed us with its warm heart, and as the summer heat softened into fall warmth, we found ourselves enjoying the company of friends, old and new.
Cruising is always a pleasure, but so is coming home again.
