I had a good meal last night at the Hotel de France, although they put me, the lone diner, right in the middle of the restaurant, rather than at a table against a wall.

... to like in UK but the second lock we came to looked strange. Before it was an old boat lift (see picture left) and looking up the name for the more modern one it said "ascenseur" Des Fontinettes, so we thought this must be a modern lift. It just looked like a solid concrete wall in front of us (see picture right), anyway John called them up and they said 40 minutes, so we tied up to wait.
