Turning South and Swan Gangs!

Spent last night (June 8) in Gray, our farthest north port on the Saône River. Gray has a beautiful 16 century Basilica which we toured.

They also have very helpful tourist office. We headed south this  morning and were attacked repeatedly by roving bands of Swans. Swan gangs. Each gang required we pay “protection” in the form of stale bread before letting us pass. This is not the France I used to know.

We are currently moored under the watchful eye of this areas capo de capo of Swans. It will be an uncomfortable night…
