Sete – Argeliers

Over the bridgeThe lads set off from Sete and head for Agde where they pick up the Canal du Midi which they will follow for the next three days. At Agde a cycle path runs alongside the canal but this soon turns to rougher terrain.

In parts exposed tree roots make the going uncomfortable but the lads have a good run to Beziers where they stop for lunch beside the ‘eight locks’ which is an impressive feat of river navigation.

Next they move on to Poilhes where I had been waiting and doing a bit of fishing. Just before they arrive I caught a cat fish which I threw back (as you do). Of course they don’t believe me despite the photo. They think I bought it from a shop.

We get the kettle out and have a brew before moving on to Argeliers where we are staying in a Gite. It’s quite a place with a large first floor area with a pool table.

We go to the restaurant for our evening meal and enjoy a good meal and crack before returning to the Gite for the inevitable game of Killer, some good crack and dance moves. It was quite a party!
