We were advised to go up river to Port De Pontrieux.  This involved going up with the tide, as the river was too shallow at low water, then thru a lock up to the Village of Pontrieux. 

Before we took Passat we took the dingy up about half way to see what it was like.  I was comfortable with the depth, Sandra not so much. 

The trip up in Passat was uneventful although we did plow mud for a short time just before reaching the lock.  A highlight of the trip was a chateau looking down on us from the high bank.  Above the lock we were met by the harbormaster, who led us to our berth in his launch.

A beautiful, quiet setting on the river, next to a delightful village.  Now one of my favorite spots in Europe.

Chateau De La Roche-Jagu looks over the river.

Passat at the peaceful new dock.

Town square.

The Eiffel building houses the tourist center.

The river meanders through the village.

We take a long walk along the river.

Ooops missed the high tide!!!

Heron buoy.

Trains still offer a reasonable alternative to the car in France.
