The day starts bright but cool (14C), but, it is soon a bright and sunny, 24C.
The first priority is to get electric hook-up, our fridge can function on gas, but, not Kathleen;s hair dryer and straighteners.
Fortunately, a Dutch van departs, promptly, and, we are quick to move into their vacated spot and get ourselves plugged in.

We rode on along a different canal, Nivernais Canal, for the afternoon, and unfortunately didn't see any more boats coming ...
... riding along that far, with just each other to talk to, but the time passes quickly. John has mastered French, and sings in French as we go along. I don't think they are love songs though as there are lots of Bonjours, Bonsoirs and Mercis. Each bend is different, sometimes we are beside the river, sometimes the canals, sometimes vineyards, farmland etc. there are crops of corn, wheat and something else we don't know. Not many cattle, but we ...
