Fwd: 24 km to Auxerre from lock 70

For some reason the words for my post have not posted. Now trying again.


> Roger had a new running partner this morning. Louise set off with him but she was on a bike. Chris went for a bike ride and were on the first lock around 9:30. We were delayed by a problem with the gas. Robert had not realised Louise had turned it off and we thought the bottle was empty. We called the boat yard twice and Lyn was able to practice her best French. First to report the problem and then to apologise and say we had solved it.
> Yesterday's ride to Vincelles meant finding a Boulangerie was not a problem today and after a short excursion on the bike and we were sorted for lunch.
>
> We stopped in the shade by lock 74 for lunch . Scrambled eggs with salad and cold meat.
>
> Feed and watered we entered the lock but had to wait 10 minutes as a another boat was on its way. We went thought the lock together and then went in tandem all the way to Auxerre. We arrived around 4:00pm and continued into the basin. We had a waterside tour before turning around and mooring for the night in the park.
