Beziers - Les Neuf Ecluses

These are the famous 9 consecutive locks on the Canal du Midi, designed and built under Louis the 14th, and which still function perfectly. The "Neuf Ecluses" are now a registered UNESCO World Heritage landmark
Believe it or not, the peniche heading through the locks is a bee-keeping barge!
The bees spend 6 months ashore in the Ardeche, but the rest of the time, those hives are floating around the south of France!
