Narbonne and the Canal de la Robine

There is a good cycle ride in to the centre of Narbonne alongside the Canal de la Robine. This is the link canal from the River Aude to the Canal du Midi (the canal linking the mediterranean to the Garonne river at Bordeaux and the Atlantic).

The road to the canal from camping La Nautique takes you past this old barge which is being restored.

We spotted this turtle heading away from Narbonne. Indigenous? Released pet?

As the canal dips under the city the cycle path brings you into old Narbonne.

After exploring the old city, and munching sandwiches on the quayside, we headed back to the campsite, after picking up a French data sim for the mifi (30 euros for 6 GB).
