Warning - there are lots here too!
On our final day in Carcassonne we had a walk past the old city and into the main city.
We passed the wall that I showed you in a previous post
Down the hill to the old bridge...
….where these two were in good spirit - they may have been on the route to Santiago de Compostela.
We had a good view of the bridge that we walked over when we first arrived in Carcassonne and good views of the old city too.
We stopped for a coffee at a lovely little cafe so I will be joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday
Inside was a real delight..
Hubby took a closer look
The cafe was quite full so I have only shown you photos with no one in them - the comfy chairs were snapped as someone left!
I have never seen such a fantastic array of cakes and chose a slice of fruit cake to share - thank goodness we didn't order one each -it was huge!!! Our drinks were tea - hubby, coffee - me!
From here we enjoyed a walk through the main streets and picked up a sandwich to eat by the canal while we waited for the boat to let us on.
The trip was for nearly 3 hours and we went through two locks and turned just before we reached a third.
At one of the locks we saw a mink - I think the man in the small boat was distracted as when we started to go down the edge of his boat caught on the side and he had to push it off with a bit of a bang!
Beyond the Black Mountains is the Massif central
The Canal du Midi is lined with trees that put their roots down and stabilise the banks.
The three hours went very quickly and we were soon back at the Marina.
I hope that you are still here so that I can wish you a Happy T Day. I'll be here again in few hours with my post for the new theme for Try It On Tuesday!
Thanks for looking, Chris
