... us, which seemed to be a waste of water.

On the approach to Valenciennes Isi spotted something struggling and flapping in the water which turned out to be a poor pigeon in the canal. We tried to help it but when John saw the extent of its injuries, it was kinder to let it slip beneath the water than prolonging its suffering any more.

... big karaoke followed by a firework display the night before. It was holding an event tonight with a big BBQ and a lot of mainly men arriving for a presentation of trophies for a big fishing competition. The BBQ was mainly a big baguette with sausages and chips and a homemade tomato sauce or mayonnaise. Isi could not believe the appetite these men had.

They were very jealous of our 5 months cruise. There was a mother moorhen with 4 young chicks, a late second brood as they were quite tiny.

It was Saturday so we would get to St Quentin well in time for the ...

... wants one for Christmas now!!

We sat at a picnic table in the welcome shade and chatted with the 2 Dutch couples. They warned us to be ready for a Macquincourt tunnel which we get towed through and we will go through very soon. The tunnel is the longest in France at 5670 metres and ventilation is a problem, hence the towing by an electric tunnel tug boat with our engine off.
