Legends from our own lunchtimes

Time to chat
Baume-les-Dames to l'Isle-sur-le-Doubs

When one is travelling in company with others, some sort of spell is cast which creates endless conversation.   

Therefore it is best to keep travel distances short, to enable one to be safely berthed in time to carry on the lunch time conversation, which no doubt was a carry on from the one that was begun immediately after breakfast and will roll on into the evening and sometimes beyond.

Perhaps it is a product of the loneliness of the long sea voyage, after all, sometimes we have to travel three or four kilometres with absolutely no means of communication between locks (not counting the marine radio of course, for catching up on urgent new thoughts).
