... all to be consumed -goats, rabbits from small to giant, different birds, all sorts -
Departed Lauhans and headed back to Pont de Vaux over the next couple of days. Spent 2 nights in Pont de Vaux, refuelled and stocked up then headed for Lyon -3 days cruising south.

... Isi must have not understood properly but was convinced he said "convoi" and knowing about the water shortages we were not surprised. We were in the 3rd lock and we switched off the engine because of the times these locks take and when going down it is safe to do so BUT, we could not restart ST as the battery was totally flat.
