THE GLEANERS -LES GLANEUSES

Some of our best slow travel takes place early in the morning in the fall as the light is clear and sharp and often there is a haze of mist rising off the water.  As we glide along, we frequently see gleaners harvesting nuts by the side of the canal.  They seem like ethereal figures from the past, surrounded by the mist.  “Gleaning”, or the right to harvest left over fruit, vegetables, nuts and grains from the summer harvest is an ancient French tradition, embodied in Napoleonic laws, that is alive and well in the small rural villages along the less travelled canals.
