Made it back to Briare about 5pm, filled up with fuel (80 litres for 166 kilometres and 41 engine hours is not bad!), sorted out our computer backups and settled down to another of Denise's meals and a very welcome early night in bed. 11th July The final anchorage-- Briare Washing, cleaning, buying train tickets and arranging to meet our French hosts tomorrow was the order of the day. Got most of that done by ...

We arrived at Montargis which has lots of canals that crisscross the town but are not navigable. It is a shame as we were hoping it might have been like Giethoorn in Holland as it has been likened to Venice. Our canal does however go straight through the centre like in Holland so we will see ...
