French Canals – Thursday

Another cool start to the day, but it soon warmed up. We continued down the River Yonne this morning to the junction with the Canal du Bourgogne.

The river seems so wide along here!

We then went up the Canal du Bourgogne (Burgundy Canal) and stopped at the port in Laroche-Migennes for lunch.

A bonus was watching the trains opposite…

After lunch, we continued up the very pleasant Canal du Bourgogne. It was nice to be back on a canal after a day of rivers.

One of the lock keepers kindly took our photo:

And we passed under a TGV line just at the right time:

We’ve yet to work out if we’ve travelled on this particular line ourselves.

We’re now enjoying a beer in a (hopefully) quiet spot for the night!

28Km and 8 locks today.
