Sunday 3rd August 2014

No problem leaving the mooring and going through the lock by the old boat lift this morning. Isi was incapacitated with dreadful back pain going into spasms.

When we got to the boat lift there was a tour boat waiting for passengers but the lift didn't break into action until 12 noon. We had no information as to times for the lift but with hindsight it went on the hour each way and ...

... We had lunch and then were on our way towards the Strepy boat lift which we will do tomorrow. The girls wanted to clean the decks as we went along and made a very good job of them too!

The biggest loads were the container barges and we also saw newly constructed yards and cranes for this container traffic.

The one unusual thing we saw today ...

... 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.

We just got tied up at a mooring in Valenciennes, but not the one we used last time. It is all change ...
