11 August- Clamecy – Canal de Nivernais

We have stayed on at Clamecy for their big waterways festival, including frog leg tasting. 

delicious!!
 
and then along cam a traveling steel band
That was on the Saturday after the market and then there was Sunday!!
 
Plenty of exotic craft passing by including a broken down ex-car being dragged along by a swimmer
and at first quite serene and then everybody decided to get wet.
and plenty of bizarre costumes on show

including the mad Viking on the next boat

I was genuinely pleased to see the broken car had got going
and we finished off the parade with a visit from some swimmers offering local booze!
