Bike Ride Along the Canal du Midi

This week on a sultry summer day, we took a two hour bike ride along the Canal du Midi that originates at the Atlantic and ends in the Mediterranean Sea. We rode from Colombiers north. It was a beautifully shady ride through vineyards and small villages. Vacationers on boats and barges floated by waving...the cicadas serenaded us the whole way. It was just amazing. Under the incredible plane trees...aka sycamores (Mike's editorial)...the temperature was so cool and fresh. A wonderful breeze stayed with us most of the ride. What a wonderful summer diversion!
