French Canals – Wednesday

Another nice day on the canals. Not as cold this morning as it was yesterday, and soon warmed up to 30C or so. It seems strange being in this temperature with the trees starting to look quite autumnal.

We completed the Canal du Loing, with the remote control locks, and passed onto the Canal de Briare, which has a mixture of manual (with a lock keeper) and automatic locks.

One was particularly deep at 9.8m:

Luckily the lock keeper had a rope with a hook on the end to reach our mooring lines!

We’re now moored at Montpresson, a sleepy village south of Montgargis.

And enjoying a beer!

33Km and 18 locks today.
