A hard day's play in France [part 1] -- SkyWatch Friday (my twenty-seventh) -- Our Spring 2009 Europe Holiday
We went to Homps to ride a canal boat on the Canal du Midi. When we got there we found out that in late April they only ran the afternoon ride so we had to figure out what to do whit our morning.
By unanimous vote it was decided we would visit an old town a bit to the north.
I will show you around that quaint little town which once had been a midievial fortress city.
The boat captain (only he and a boat attendant would be on our little canal boat) suggested that we drive north to Minerve (link).
We couldn't take the tour (we wouldn't anyway) because we had to have eaten and be back to Homps by 1:00.
The cat was digging in the garbage
at the restaurant outside eating area.
And what did we eat? These places here were not fast food
and there wasn't a MacDonalds. So we dug into our emergency rations.
That would be peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made in the car,
some cookies, and canned Coca Cola Light.
We made it back in plenty of time for our canal boat ride. I will post from that nice ride next time.
We had fun. I will write more of our Spring 2009 Europe Holiday later.

Speaking of Rome, the district is changing our curriculum next year. Ancient Greece and Rome will now be taught in middle school which bums me out. They're two of my absolute favorite units to teach.
I'm glad you're putting all the European posts on one site. I'll enjoy reading them over there.
Have a great weekend
