Description - Narrow Dog To Carcassonne by Terry Darlington

Terry and Monica Darlington are intrepid pensioners who made the surprising decision to sail their canal narrowboat Phillis May, sixteen hundred miles across France and down to the Mediterranean, accompanied only by their whippet Jim. They took advise from nautical experts, who told them they would lose their boat and their lives (and, indeed, their whippet Jim). arrow Dog to Carcassonne is a true story of high adventure in France, England, Belgium and out at sea, as experienced by two innocents and a reluctant dog. On board the Phillis May you share in a very different way of life. You go rabbiting in Oxfordshire, tie up among the bankers in the City of London, live among history in Flanders, drift through Champagne, throw a rope around the Eiffel Tower, struggle with hostile life forms in Burgundy, float down the Saone from vineyard to vineyard, get swept along by the terrible Rhone from Lyon to Avignon, dip your toes in the Mediterranean, and sail across inland seas among the flamingos of the Camargue. reakdowns, floods, accidents, hangovers, vandals, dicks, trolls, aliens, gongoozlers, killer fish and the walking dead stand between our intrepid crew and their goal many-tow

Author Biography - Terry Darlington

Terry Darlington was brought up in Pembroke Dock during the war, between a Sunderland flying boat base and an oil terminal. He survived and moved to Staffordshire, where he founded Research Associates, the international market research firm, and Stone Master Marathoners, the running club. Like many Welshmen he is talkative and confiding, but ill at ease with practical matters and liable to linger in public houses. He likes boating but knows nothing about it. onica Darlington comes from Radnorshire.Her father was a gardener and her mother a housemaid, or perhaps it was the other way round. She has a first class degree in French, has run thirty marathons, and can leap tall buildings with a single bound. Her three children have all reproduced themselves, removing doubts about whether she and Terry are the same species. She quite likes boating but knows nothing about it. Brynula Great Expectations (Jim) is sprung from a long line of dogs with ridiculous names. Jim can run at forty miles an hour.He is cowardly, thieving, and disrespectful and hates boating.
