Really, there was no cloud in the sky. But it was cold. Okay 5 degrees warmer than yesterday but nevertheless cold. Cold for me 😉 At Narbonne, where I arrived at 7 pm were only 18 degrees.
I was glad to cycle the Canal du Midi. Very often I spent a Look on this channel. I love the French channel system and the slow kind of traveling by houseboat.
With the bicycle I am more than twice as fast as the boats are although this towpaths are only dirt track. It’s a contemplative life there on these houseboats. About 10 years ago I was captain on a houseboat for a week in the north of France. One disadvantage on the boat is that on most of the Route you see only the bank of the river. Mostly you have no over- or wider view.
It was a really rough dirt road today and about 90 %. I had to be fully concentrated to keep the narrow lane. However it happened that I was to late to avoid a pothole.
I am really impressed that the bicycle is able to take all these holes and strokes.
