We have heard again from the new owners on narrowboat Melissa in Belgium.  They have sent us these photographs of the boat being lifted into the river at Bruges.  They say that they are having great fun on the boat and that they are getting lots of reaction to the narrowboat from people, as it's quite an unsual sighting to see an English canal boat on the river in Belgium.   Wishing Melissa & it's new owners many days of fun cruising the river in Bruges!
