Friday 30th August Joigny-St Florentin
Joigny is a lovely town and one of the highlights of this years canal trip.
Alan got up early this morning and went over to bridge to the lovely boulangerie we found yesterday. He came back with the ubiquitous baguette. So nice. So many eaten in the last 2 weeks. Zumba, here I come!
Anyway, we left the Joigny marina around 9am and headed in the direction of St Florentin. It turned out to be a really long day. We spent an hour waiting at a broken lock, and then sort of stuck in the backlog as the lock only took 2 boats at a time. We finally made it back to St Florentin around 6pm, feeling knackered. It was hot today as well which was nice.
When we finished tying up we went for a walk up the hill to see the church (closed) and then for our now usual aperitif (kir) and then walked back to the boat for dinner.
Dinner consisted of pretty much everything left in the fridge, cooked in a frypan. Eggs, chicken, tomatoes, cheese, yellow pepper, green pepper, olives, more cheese. Did I mention cheese? Also fried baguette slices with olives. We have a lot of olives left.
Didn’t look pretty but it was tasty! The Roquefort was rather delicious.
So here we are, our last night before packing up, cleaning the boat and jumping on a train to Paris in the morning.
We should sleep well tonight.
Here are some photos I took today.
