At Mehun-sur-Yèvre we reconnected with the Canal de Berry, which we had not followed since St-Amand-Montrond, since the canal decribed two sides of a triangle between these towns.
Once on the canal there was little difficulty with navigation and none at all with hills.
The countryside was prodigiously fertile but quite flat, and the villages were not far apart, so we did not have to exert ourselves much each day. This greatly helped the invalid to recover her strength.
