Our penichette moored at Carcassone

Our penichette moored at Carcassone.

We moored at Carrcassone about midday, and plugged into electricity to charge batteries straight away. This is our penichette, a great little boat.
In one afternoon, we walked across town and up the hill to the medieval village inside a castle wall. The place was restored in the 19th century, apparently not very accurately, but it was still very interesting. I didn’t have my camera because my 3 batteries were flat, so there are no photos at the moment for the blog. But just imagine a castle and you’ve got it.

Now, now… not happy, Carm. “Just imagine a castle”???? So not good enough!
Here you are, spending everyone’s inheritance… and you can’t give us a pic of a castle!
I want a pic!! Go back!

Must admit, it was a bloody great castle! I liked the way the pigeons were allowed to live in holes in the wall and any where else. It even had pigeon towers. It had a village inside the walls, lots of little shops, and you could go anywhere. A few places one had to pay, so we didn’t bother with them. There was so much to see that was free. I’ll try cincopa with Jon’s photos.
