On the Canal de la Robine, near Narbonne
South France Guide Photo of the Week - September 24 1997
Many of these lock keepers houses are empty on the Canal du Midi, and many have been bought up or leased. This one, is on the Canal de la Robine - an offshoot of the Canal du Midi, that runs through Narbonne and runs parrallel to salt flats, and beaches. The house is opposite a wild life reserve, and is a fond place for fishermen, and walkers who stop in the nearby shade to beat the heat of the sun.
