10th July Back to Briare In the morning we waited for the Office de Tourisme to open and the lady there took us across the road to the Church of St. Martin. Took lots of photos. (I finally got all the iPads and phones backed up so I can now access Denise's photos-- can't promise I will have the energy or patience to go back through this blog and add more now, however!) The weather was not good but we were pleased we stopped long ...

In the end, even after the delays and ...

Twelve locks in pretty good order

... we had had, in fine fashion without a hitch. Lunch was imposed on us at lock #12 - Gazonne - because of lunchtime for the eclusier and we took a lot of photos. The rest of the trip to Ouzouer-sur-Trezee was uneventful and the six locks were frankly easy. After mooring and having lunch we spent a few hours having showers and then a well earned rest--I did that is, and Denise read. After dinner I went for a walk around the village and out into ...
