France Canal trip, day 4

Today we make up for lost time due to the May 1st National Holiday.  An incredible sunrise greets us at Lamarche-sur-Saône as we head towards Dole.  The weather is on-again/off again rain, sun, clouds, sun, rain.  We also make our big move off the Saône River and canals and turn up the Canal du Rhône au Rhin towards Dole.  We're a bit apprehensive about this canal, as it's much busier and much narrower with a lot more locks, some of them quite deep.   As it turns out, our worries were for naught.  The Rhin is incredible!
