Photographer's Note

Mardi - Loiret - 2402 inhabitants - altitude 110 meters.

I benefitted from this beautiful morning of end of autumn to continue my ballade along the canal of Orleans.
I arrived in Mardi charming small village crossed by the old Roman way from Orleans to Autun in Burgundy. The opening of the canal in 1692 was prosperous to the village, the annual traffic of the boats was estimated at 1.800 for the transport of wood and vinegar.

On the other side of the channel one can see this old house of vine.
It's important to know that the vine was introduced here by the Romans.
Chears !
