Wednesday, we started cruising early Cours-les-Barres. After breakfast we left the barge and went to Cosne-sur-Loire for market day. We had significant rain again during our outing. In the middle of town, in the rain, there were stalls and tents set up containing everything from mattresses through dresses and on to meat and vegetables. It was quite crowded with local residents. We also walked around town and along the river where there used to be an important forge. The bus took us back to the barge and met it as it was tying up at our overnight stop. Then we had lunch.
A side street in Cosne. Many towns had side canals or waterways. There was still some color to the trees but mostly looked like winter had set in.

St. Agnon church.
Inside Ste. Anne's.
Typical window treatment. ALL window's had lace curtains. Many of them had scenes such as these cats or horses or fish or landscapes.
This is one of the larger fruit and vegetable displays.
