Locks, bridges and aqueducts linking the Atlantic to the Mediterranean a total of 240km (149 miles) This canal the amazing brain child and work of Pierre – Paul Riquet (a salt tax baren) was completed in 1681. It was the greatest engineering feat of its time and revolutionised local economies. It was the life blood of trade in the region. It still plays an important role with its pastoral environment it is enjoyed by cyclists, walkers and cruisers. The tourist trade!

You are having a wonderful trip and do much to discover! Very clever lady to deceive the enemy like that!
Yes “kindness” in a strange way.🙂
Never heard of that amazing canal. And that woman – I wonder how much support she got for throwing good food over the wall – at least it worked. So many interesting places in this old world.
And we keep rejoicing in spite of everything. Looking so forward to Heaven. Enjoy your day my sister.
Yes! We do have a faith that will keep us till He comes.
