This was the web site of Roger and Sue Biddle and recorded the progress of our lives since our retirement in 2005 when we sold our house and business, Provender Delicatessen in South Petherton, Somerset and bought a Dutch Barge called Harmonie II. We sailed all around Europe and our trials and tribulations are recounted here.
On May 10th 2020 Sue died in Tauranga, New Zealand from secondary bone cancer and the primary cancer was never found. Whilst caring for Sue I was diagnosed with Myeloma which is a bit like a blood cancer but is longer term than Sues disease.
I hope to return to England in April 2021 where I will be turning my attention to raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support by walking the 102 mile long Macmillan Way West in Sues memory but in the meantime I have completed a section beginning here recording our life together since 1974 when we first met some 46 years ago. Another section records my life before we met from 1956 to 1974.
The site is divided into three sections from where you can navigate to pages covering the original subject of Barging, our Travels round the world and our Lifestyle Blog since coming ashore to live.
The drop down menu on the top left of every page includes a link to the the latest lifestyle blog page which is updated regularly, other pages which do not fit any other sections and to the different sections.
