We passed through some really pretty locks where the cottage owners had made a real effort to make their little spot of France very pleasing to the eye.
Our lock keeper was travelling with us as did the locks and we were surprised to see her stop by the tow path wildly gesticulating up into the sky... After a few moments we saw what she was pointing at, some storks had made their nest at the top of a dead tree and were in residence, Mum, Dad and two babies! A very unusual sight!
We arrived at Cercy-la-Tour, where the pontoon provided us with free water and electricity for a 3 night stay and we were pleased to see old friends Jim and Katie there who helped us tie up.
As we all know from bitter experience the French men wee everywhere regardless of who can see them, so we were very amused to see these outdoor facilities which John just had to try....!!
Our friends Katie and Jim.

We left on the 29th June after our 3 nights and moved on to new pastures, but the long hot spell seems to have ended as we've had quite a few rain and thunder storms.
