My previous post in this series is a photo essay on Carcassonne.
In our planning process we discovered photos of the Canal du Midi – so appealing it made our wannasee list. A drive north along the Mediterranean coast from St-André brought us to Beziers and a ticket office.
The Canal was carved out across the breadth of France, from the Atlantic coast to the Mediterranean Sea. Its original worth was as a trade link but today you will find pleasure boats leisurely putzing along.
