French Canals – Saturday Morning

Another beautiful day… But not much progress this morning. We arrived at the first lock, no one around and no information on what to do next. Tried phoning the canal people; no answer.

Eventually the lock emptied, a boat came out and we went in. After discussion, what we should have done is to look inside a shed by the lock to get the phone number of the lock keeper…

We were then held up at the second lock because “another boat is coming”. Half an hour later, it arrived, but by then the next lock had closed for lunch so we couldn’t get to a restaurant!

Luckily we keep supplies on the boat!
