France -- Midi du Canal Part #1-- Looking At the Sky

Click any picture for large size
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

I love the view at the locks - the trees form what can only be described in view as a canal above - minus the reflctions, of course!

Bonjour Jim!
Your photos of gthe bridge remind me of the song, "Sur Le Pont d'Avignon"

I love all things French. Thanks for taking us along on the canal tour.
