The Unexpected

Imagine being on a river cruise and getting stuck for 3 days in one location because the river is flooding.  And it’s in the fall!  That’s exactly what happened to us on our Rhone River cruise a couple of years ago.  The Rhone River flow was far above the level to close the locks, thereby bringing all river traffic to a halt.  One morning when we got up there was this tree lodged against the bow of the ship.

All luck, or Mr. Murphy would have it, we were anchored by the smallest town on the cruise.  Of course this town had no services either.  So we were stuck making the best of it with lots of wine.  Sometimes there are unexpected benefits on a wine cruise.  Once the tree was removed a day later we continued our journey.
