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.
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. . . .
