About this book
The delightful true story of two pensioners and their whippet Jim who sail from Stone in Staffordshire to Carcassonne in the South of France in a narrowboat. Before setting off they took advice from nautical experts, who told them they would lose their boat, their dog, and their own lives, but they went ahead all the same.
When they retired, Terry and Monica Darlington decided to sail their canal narrow boat across the Channel and down to the Mediterranean, together with their whippet Jim. They took advice from experts, who said they would die, together with their whippet Jim. Aliens, vandals, and the walking dead all stand between three innocents and their goal.
