weekly photo challenge: on the move
We had decided to ride our bikes from Toulouse to Bordeaux along the Canal Lateral. We took 3 leisurely days, having decided to stop along the way, enjoy the scenery, the food, and cozy or grand hotels. Every time I go to the canal (more often the Canal du Midi) I wonder what it would be like to do it by boat instead of walking, running or cycling. Many people take their houseboats, sailboats and small motorized boats for a short visit or a longer holiday. Here a small sailboat is navigating the lock system, changing water levels to allow it to move along this engineering wonder of a canal system.
