Week-end on the Canal du Midi

Having set off on a Nicols Sixto on friday late afternoon with my husband, inlaws, and my two children, we gently cruised up to Ventenac for some wine tasting before our evening meal on the boat. Fabulous weather in September, and our dog Spotty, enjoyed the view of ducks and geese…Saturday we went through 3 locks before a lovely lunch at « Le Baron d’Ar » just by the écluse d’Ognon. We then set off again on full stomachs, through three more locks to Puichéric for the night. Return back the next day, picnicking by the boat for lunch and fishing for the kids,to our point of departure at the Somail. Being novices, we got the hang of the locks after the first one, having moored up to watch other boats have a go before us. Other tourists were very heplful and the lock-keepers were on the whole pleasant too. Fabulous memories of this two day trip, and looking forward to our next one, longer , no doubt. The Sixto boat is very well equiped and spacious, with a great terace, and lots of room for the children to run about. Happy times…
