After two hours of training in French we push off

There was much to learn about starting and running the boat, docking, tying up, going through locks, flushing the toilet and using shower and the kitchen! We all paid attention and then went on a trial run to a lock. We left Loisy and two hours later were in La Truchere a very sleepy dock with wheat fields and cows all around. We showered in our funky toilette/shower stall and had dinner at L’Escale, the only place in town. Wink had frog’s legs with garlic which everyone tried. Not another American in sight. The French people love Dave because he mystifies them…..”how do you speak French so well?” they ask! And of course he has to explain about his French girlfriend!
