We left the Canal Latéral á la Loire, dropping down through an automated lock to Decize, where there was a hypermarket nearby; ideal for restocking the food and beer.
One more lock took us onto the River Loire, and we stopped at nice moorings by the town for lunch.
Lunch was excellent, even if we were not quite sure what we were eating!
After a look around Decize, we joined the Canal du Nivernais for our journey north.
This canal is a bit smaller than the other canals we’ve used, and so far, we’ve yet to meet another boat.
Yet again, we’re now moored in the middle of nowhere!
17Km and 6 locks today.
