The white line shows our route in France since the beginning of June. We are not too far from Paris, but are leaving that visit for next year.
Our next town on the Canal du Loing is Montargis, where the church of the Madeleine dominated this end of town.
These are houses by the canal in Montargis, to show the shutters are open at last, at the end of a hot summer.
Along this stretch of the canal are many walnut trees, and often the best way to harvest them is from the roof of The Puzzler.
As the green husks are just opening, some walnuts are falling, while others are still on the tree.
Further on, we also found some sloes, for making sloe gin. Have we picked too many??
These are Poitou donkeys, and a horse, which have escaped from their field on to the tow path.
The Loing river front is attractive in Nemours, where we stopped for shopping.
Out of town, this is how the other half lives!
Barge Sebastien is empty, so really fills the lock.
We had to change our plans, and bypass an attractive mooring, due to this fallen tree in the canal. Tomorrow this pound is to be closed so that it can be cleared.
