France’s Longest Canal–Canal du Midi at Languedoc

The longest canal in France is the Canal du Midi. Here at Languedoc. Note the three canal boats on the left bank.  All three are lined up with their bows pointing in the same direction. In the distance, an arch bridge for vehicles of all types.  The sidewalk on the right could have been a towpath in the past when horses drew narrowboats or packet boat along canals all over the French country side.
