Barges on the French waterways

A wee bit of video

A barge passed us today (Thursday 03-Sep-09)
I wonder what the heavy metal brigade in Ireland would make of this. BTW the one in the video is only a 350 tonne barge, the one in the pic above is a two storey car transporter being pushed by another. This pic was taken on the Seine, it pays to keep out of their way…
