Houseboat and washhouse

At the lock at Montgiscard, a shop has opened on a house-boat "Salammbô". As you can see on the notice it is called "Le Jardin des Orangers" ( The garden of Orange-trees").
You are invited to taste drinks and pastry made with all kinds of citrus-fruits, but the main activity is to sell citrus-fruits trees from the hothouse installed on board.
In the background of the picture, you can a well-preserved washhouse. This one of the oldest along the "Canal du Midi".
