... It was very hot today, 34 degs I think and sunny. Hottest day so far. We stopped in Pouilly to eat our lunch but Dave and I just found a shady, grassy square and stayed put.
Then we carried onto another medieval town called La Charite-sur-Loire with its old ramparts and very old church (construction started in 1050). It was an awe inspiring church but obviously doesn't ...
... taking the brunt of commerce, many canals are recreational havens. We saw quite a few boats making their leisurely way through the canals and their locks as we pedaled into the ever-present south wind. Riding those 46 miles was a long slog. Beautiful, with stone villages and the ever present churches, but still long, with the wind always pushing against us. We arrived in Montargis in the afternoon. Everyone, it seemed was exhausted from hours of pedaling ...
The day dawned sunny and warm. At last! We stayed on the barge while Stefan took us over the Pont Canal de Briare. This engineering marvel, designed by Effiel, is a canal within a bridge that goes over the Loire river. The Loire is basically non-navigatable. The canal system was built to allow commerce to flow.

We hadn't gone far when Dave got a flat. Ari changed the tyre quickly and we were on our way. While we ...
The day dawned wet and thundery. I did not sleep very well. Our cabin has a double bunk below and a single above. Dave cannot quite lie straight in the bed as it isn't quite long enough so I suggested he take the lower bed and I'd sleep above. The bed is quite narrow so I was probably conscious of falling out!
Anyway I got a few hours and am hopeful tonight will be better as I should be tired from the exercise!
