Trebes

Trebes is a pleasant village with our mooring right in the middle of the cafe precinct, a short walk for croissants and baguettes across a bridge adorned with flower boxes in full bloom.

We had a great tapas lunch here at the local wine bar and cafe. This was to be 2 night stop to allow a little R & R after the last few days of lazy travel along the canal. Coming into Trebe we passed through one lock where the lock keeper fills in his spare time with a welding rod creating all sorts of figures that are spread out on his lawn. A wooden carved crocodile greets you as you start-up the lock with a tin elephant on the other bank. All his work has created a great atmosphere for boaters.

Being here for a day allowed us time for a good walk around. Tony and Rosemary were seduced by the offerings of an antique shop, full of all sorts of stuff. A day could be spent pouring over its contents. Allthego took a stroll down the canal for a couple of kilometres to a bridge and indulged in numerous photos of said bridge. It had been described in one of the brochures as a must photo or paint opportunity.

The Canal continiues to be a great boating experience, the weather is starting to warm up and the French, Germans and Brits are taking their shirts off. Bodies of all shapes and sizes are emerging on the decks of boats as they pass us. Enough said of this.

Our next stop is at Carcassonne, the old walled city.
