On our bikes again and set for a nice easy ride downhill. We stopped at a small winery in the village adjacent to the church
Back to the boat for lunch, and then we set out; 2 locks down and 9 to go. The Qs decided to ride along the bike track that runs alongside the canal so negotiating the locks was left in the precarious hands of the Webbs and the Meaghers. I took the wheel and John and David handled the ropes, Sue M sat by for moral support. The locks were easier this time because we approached them from the high side, so there was no scurrying up ladders to pull the cord that controlled the lock. We arrived at our mooring for the night, a very modern port called Fragnes. It had lots of facilities such as wifi, showers and laundry service. Unfortunately the wifi reception was weak and we couldn’t upload our blog. The best thing, however was that there was a restaurant and it was open! Everyone did their own thing, such as it was, until drinks on deck at 6.00. We had some of the Rully purchased earlier in the day which tasted better with a full glass.
Dinner was surprisingly good, the usual combinations menus. John had snails and frog legs for entrée, followed by bouillabaisse. The waitress was obviously concerned that he might not be aware of what he was ordering and checked with him several times to make sure he understood that he was ordering snails and frogs legs. I opted for the main course/dessert option and had a duck pie, which was delicious, followed by profiteroles. Needless to say a couple of bottles of wine were consumed at the restaurant and back on the boat.
