Artaix - Le canal latéral de Roanne à Digoin & Le Basin
A short video, even less than 90 seconds, of the canal and ‘Le Bassin’ – as seen from the opposite bank of the canal. This video, together with the last 4 pictures, are made as recent as this morning, Sunday the 19th of October 2014. The weather continues to be absolutely summer-like, everyone is sitting outside (except the creators of a blog page, of course) and the place is popular with fishermen, BBQ-ers, boats, campervans, a caravan and even a pique-nicking elderly couple alike. All (four) boats are owned by people on the way to their winter mooring in the Port de Roanne. No one is in a hurry, as the spot is gorgeous and for free. Roanne is less gorgeous, urbanized and not for free, but a lot more convenient. To make a long story short: ideal for the winter (Roanne we mean). Next week probably a bit more adventurous story. Bye for now.
