We continued to follow the Euro Velo rout system, and local bicycle trails. These follow canals for the most part, and in rural areas with small villages every five to fifteen kilometers.
By watching several boats go through the locks, and talking to one helpful English speaker, we learned the basics of navigating the canals. It looks like a fun way to travel, you can also walk or bike the accompanying trail, and have the satisfaction of running your own show.
We took a day off in Saverne for some rest, fine food, to enjoy the beauty, slow pace of life here, and meet some friendly people. More of Alsace to come.
