We stopped at a marina in Port de Savoyeaux for ice cream. It was really hot for several days. We thought we would keep moving to have a breeze through the boat and stop later for the evening.
|the marina library had the shelves arranged according to language|
We arrived at a lock at 6:15 and didn’t realize that some of the locks close at 6:00. There happen to be a lock tender at this lock and he let us through. He also sold us 2 bottles of wine. Since the next lock was closed, we tied to a dock near a restaurant, not in a town. We tried to make reservations at the restaurant, but they were full for the entire night. We thought that was odd, but we later realized that there is usually one seating and people stay for the evening.
Dave made us a pasta dish for us onboard. When we bought groceries, AnneMarie would always suggest picking up “stores”, referring to something non perishable that we can use in cases like this.
