Everybody woke up early this morning. The boat felt warm and cozy but when we ventured outside we discovered a thick blanket of fog. Visibility was less than 300m. We got underway regardless, traveling slowly with extra lookouts.

The fog gradually lifted and we were traveling down stream making 7kts. Suddenly just before midday the fog completely dissspeared revealing a beautiful sunny day traveling some beautiful regions of France.
We passed three locks in quick succession with barely a wait, and parked at Conflans Sainte Honorine at 1325, gave the boat a quick tidy and wash down then went to lunch. Today was Beaujolais Nouveau in France, so apparently we had to have a glass of red wine to celebrate. My arm was twisted.

We then walked up the hill and found a big park where the kids enjoyed playing on swings and in the autumn leaves. After this we visited Museum Batellerie, with nautical history of the barges and canals.
We then returned to the park until sunset snd made our way back to the boat. Tomorrow we have secured a berth in Paris Arsenal marina!
