2011 Eclaircie - SOLD


After 10,394 kilometers traveled on bucolic canals and lazy rivers
After passing through 2,589 locks, occasionally caressing the walls, but without ever hanging up our lines
After 3,360* dinners on our back deck, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends, and always with a great view (*Just a guesstimate
After getting to know French wines and Champagnes the way a local would by "living" in those region
After mooring in charming villages and beautiful cities long enough to get to know our way around their back streets
After years of riding bikes as our main and preferred form of transportation
After meeting the most interesting people from all over the world and making lasting friendships
After wrestling the French language to the mat and declaring a tie
After living for the last six years right smack dab in the middle of Paris with delightful French neighbors
After twelve years of enjoying every day to its fullest on this side of the world,
we have decided to tuck this chapter of our lives into our memories, and return to our home in San Francisco



Over the years, we have made continual improvements to our barge, making it a very comfortable floating home. There are no projects that need to be done, and because we are moving back to our home in San Francisco, we will leave Éclaircie fully furnished and move-in ready for her new owners. We will only be taking our paintings, and a few personal items. You can see the full inventory below:
