French Canals – Tuesday

Another nice day, though again with a cold start!

It’s lovely watching the mist rise from the canal on a cold bright morning.

We’re again in a region of helpful lock keepers, though the first two were a bit grumpy.

We stopped for water and shopping at some nice moorings at Mailly-la-Ville:

Then stopped for lunch at Pr├Ęgilbert, which had a lovely church on the hill:

As we had some time in hand, we explored the pleasant 4Km branch to Vermenton. Surprisingly nice and quiet moorings, but not enough in the town for us to spend the night there.

All day, the canal and the ever larger River Yonne have joined and separated from each other:

You should just be able to see the green lock gates in the distance on the left, with the river going over a wier on the right.

21Km and 12 locks today.
