Toulouse Argens Homps: Friday 22nd April

We had breakfast at the hotel before walking to the train station and catching a train to Lezignan-Corbierre. We had one platform change in Carcassonne.

We walked to Centre Ville and then caught a taxi to Argens-Minervois. We got sorted out on the barge and our first lock was the Pechlaurier lock which was not easy.

We were locking up and the rope whacked my finger. Dave smashed his knee and we learnt that patience is required. The lock keeper did not help us at all!

The next sets of locks were much easier. We got to Homps – 6kms and 5 locks done. We tied up for the night and spoke about what we needed to do for the rest of the locks.

It drizzled from just before we tied up after a lovely but windy day. The rain continued through the night. Dinner of course had to start with red wine.

We had pasta for supper – chorizo, mushrooms and garlic and comte.
