We left St Jean de Losne on wednesday, and we werent sorry to leave... we really didnt like it much the best thing to come from our visit is Patrice!! The chandleries were not stocked well (couldnt get things we needed) and very very expensive!!!

We left at 10.40 am and after 10 hours of cruising we were unable to find anywhere to moor the boat. We ended up by tieing ourselves to a tree for the night but it was a bit scarey.... We met our first large commercial boats on our trip on the Saone and they made us feel very small indeed!!

The next day we left our shakey moorings and made for the canal de Centre where we encountered our biggest lock yet... I have to say my hands were shaking when I did the ropes the sheer size was so overwhelming!!
 The rather domineering entrance to the Canal de Centre, it felt like we were going to our doom!!!!
 And didn't feel much better inside the lock, it was so very very deep!!!
The sky seemed miles away!!
 Our fist view ever of a baby white heron!! It was so young it didnt fly away when we approached!
 Our moorings in Fragnes, unlimited electricity and water!!! Ive done all the stuff that is energy consuming including all the washing in the washing bin!!!
 Patrice investigating the front garden of the boat, he likes hiding in my bicycle basket!!

We took Patrice for a walk on his harness today but he didnt like it and kept trying to get back onto the boat!! Tomorrow we are going to move off as it is quite expensive to stay here but it has been good to enjoy amenities for once!!
