L'Ondine' - Dutch Barge Delivery - Toulouse, South of France to Maldon, Essex, UK

Following assistance rendered to a boat going aground alongside Berneray, I was invited by the new owner of L'Ondine to crew her 80ft Dutch Barge from Toulouse on the Canal de Midi (South of France) to Maldon (Essex). We had hoped to complete it in a month but it ended up taking 6/7 weeks. As we both needed to return home after month we had to leave her in Riems in the hands of the hired barge skipper and returned home via train to Paris, Calais and across the Channel to Dover

Because of the length of the trip and the number of photos taken, I have broken it up into nine pages, Canal du Midi - Canal du Rhone a Sete - Lower Rhone - Avignon - Mid Rhone - Lyon - River Saone - Northern Canals and L'Ondines Interior.
