Dinner on the boat
Stephen:

The first day Dawn and Linda became in charge of selecting the end of the day mooring position.  I had selected one, but it had been rejected because of large roots and too much shade.  So we backed across the canal to the sunny side.  It worked out great for the wine and cheese party that we had on the stern of the boat.  Linda and Sage went to bed shortly after to sleep off their jet lag, and Dawn and I walked up to the nearest gatekeeper’s house and on out to the road.  On the way back, we passed the open window of the house and glanced in at the beautiful armoire and drapery and golden glow.  A room that with the exception of electric light had probably looked this way for a couple of hundred years.

Our second day out we got to Villesequelande where we made dinner on the boat and walked into town which had a beautiful little square and a telephone which L and S used to call home, but not much more and it seemed deserted.
Wine and Cheese
We had not gotten very far that day because of the four hour break we took for lunch.  First, a nice walk into Villepinte to a épicerie for supplies, and then on their recommendation, to then town’s Hotel/Restaurant for lunch.  The first restaurant meal of the boat trip and one of the best.  Sage ordered lamb that was the best that I have ever tasted and the rest of the food matched it.
On the third day,  we got an early start and made Carcassone by 11:30. This would be by far the largest town of the trip. . . .
