French Canals – Sunday

A bit of a dull day today weather wise, but the forecast rain held off, which was a bonus.

The lock keepers also seemed a bit more organised today, and whilst we had to wait occasionally, there were no long delays.

The canal scenery is getting nicer by the mile; forested hills are the norm.

The usual collection of locks, including one double lock. And more lift bridges.

At one lock, the keeper had a very friendly dog:

We’re now moored in a quiet quay just outside Clamecy (with WiFi) and are assured that there will be some restaurants open tonight – France seems to shut down on Sundays and Mondays.

21Km, 11 locks and 2 lift bridges today. And a swing bridge, but that was open so doesn’t count!
