We stayed two nights at Montereau and subsequently left on Friday the 3rd. Reveille 7:00AM, when the temperature is still agreeable. We left 8:05AM, descended 2 locks and planned to have an overnight stop at Samois-sur-Seine after a cruise of only 25 kilometers (15,5 miles). Well, that was a disappointment as the only space left was just too short for us. Besides, the present boaters pretended not to see us – as often happens. (You’re on your own, mate!!) So we continued another 8 kilometers (5 miles) and stopped just in front of the next lock, ‘La Cave’ at Bois-le-Roi. The lock keeper gave us permission to moor for one night so we occupied the far end of the waiting-quay, thus diminishing the chance of being in the way of a commercial ship that wants to make an overnight stop. Stopping time 1:15PM. Weather: hot, hot, hot!, according to our logbook.
