The Canal du Midi in the South of France is known as the ‘Canal of the two seas’/ ‘Canal de las Doas Mars’.
The 360 km network of waterways and canals link the Atlantic ocean on the south-west side of France known as the Garonne Canal with the Mediterranean Ocean on the south-east side known as the Midi Canal.
The towpaths running along the length of the canal are long, flat paths providing fresh and shady walk ways for us doggies and humans to enjoy and watch all the activities and canal boats chug by.
We were visiting a village called Marseillette.
We could cross over one of the many bridge locks (une ecluse) on the canal and follow the canal path for miles and miles…
It was the first time I have been on a proper canal towpath watching the locks open and close. It was very exciting:
I hope we can go to the different regions the Canal du Midi runs through to explore some more:
Here’s a short video of the walk:
