Today we had a morning walking around Brienon, a small town about 12km from the start of the Canal Bourgogne. There’s an old church, and an 18th century round bath-house. Lunched at a nice restaurant, Auberge de la Porternes. Left Brienon at 2pm and headed upstream through 4 locks to St. Florentin.
