The River Oise will take us nearer to the Seine and Paris. We stop at the little town of Longueil-Annel and take a walk along the towpath. Very pleased we had moored in time before meeting this overloaded barge carrying large and heavy pieces of scrap metal. Their load has presumably moved en route making the vessel take on water and become almost unsteerable. We'll never know if it reached it's destination before it hit another boat and/or capsized!
