France -- Midi du Canal Part #1 -- SkyWatch Friday (my twenty-eight) -- Our Spring 2009 Europe Holiday
Click any caption for super sized
We are off and running
Our ride would take about two hours
We would go under several bridges on our ride
Cruising along -- A friendly family
Seen along the way:
The ducks watched us go by -- Old boat, for the taking?
A lock to go through -- It's full, we are going in
On the right note the lower water level down stream
Through in good shape -- Couple watching the action
Again note now we are on a lower level,
the water in the lock is gone
We are back -- There is our car
Tim tied us up
He enjoyed his holiday in Europe, we enjoyed his presence.
Tim, our son, is a boatman by profession. He ties up large ships and barges when they get into the Port of Houston. He has been doing this line of work now for over twenty-five years.
I will post Part #2 of our Midi du Canal ride another day. For a couple of other posts showing this ride click here
Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs and blessings,
My Mildura Blog shows us going through the loch on the mighty Murray river...
this is going to be a # 1 hit on my travel report's list.
From I was seventeen I had this dream, traveling from Bordeaux aux Marseilles en Canoe.
Canal Du Midi was in four young girls dreams in during french lessons, we planned, wrote and then.. our parents said NO.
I'm enjoying the pictures and the fact that you have been there with your loved ones.
