From big fish to small fry!

Being the maximum size of boat that fits through the canal locks we don't often come across anything larger than Serenity but out here on the river Seine it's a whole different world!  

If you talk about the Seine I always think of Paris' famous bateaux mouches, but actually a massive amount of cargo is moved along the river aswell.  And these monster ships can be up to 110m long - that's the length of a football pitch!

With container barges, tankers and barges filled with sand and gravel going by - at least the painting crew have some action to watch.....

Dwarfed by our next door neighbour!

That's a regular size car on the back deck!
