Emerson, Linda and the Pont-canal

We passed over one of the three large canal bridges over the Loire river – this one on the western terminus of the Lateral Canal à la Loire.  It is very strange to be boating in the air, 60 feet over a large river.

And we had our first Martini Night with Emerson and Linda. We were joined by a captain from a neighboring boat who was clearly enamored with the USA and ended up presenting us with the a coveted VNF flag (we’ve been looking for one for weeks).
