We needed to stay in Sens due to the rapid running of the river and very nice it was too.
However, we lifted the anchor after 5he first day and found a small addition.
Plus after the first night we discovered what all the bumps in the night had been caused by … lots of branches!
We visited the wonderful market and bought some delicious scallops and crab claws. Herbie had to wait outside which is unusual here in France but he coped pretty well.
We met a lovely old dog while having coffee afterwards, he was obviously the local hound and used to his job as the ‘meet and greet’ man of the cafe.
Finally we needed to move on. The river had slowed a little and so we went on our way. Peter gave us a wave from his boat, Joy, as we went by.
Here we are!
We met a big boy coming out of a lock which seemed to go on forever.
And Kev needed to do some mountaineering to tie off outside a lock while we waited.
We did meet a sweet little boat from Nancy with an origional Frenchman aboard. He reminded me of a 1960s French film actor.
After a long day we moored up back in Migennes and transferred to the motorhome to take our pram hood for more repairs. After dropping it off in Braire we drove on to Sancerre to spend some time with Graham and Jill which was delightful. As we had wheels we took them up to the centre of Sancerre and had lunch. All very lovely.
Of course, Herbie was delighted to see his pals and loved the big windows of Françoise … you can watch the world go by in comfort which is perfect for a nosy boy!
So, now we are back in Braire and hopefully collecting the pram hood tomorrow. The dogs are booked in at the local vets for their check up before we leave for blighty next week.
