... right in front of the lake.
Tuesday 19 August
Still cool, but with sunny intervals. Decided to stay an
extra night here, to explore the local area.
Spent the morning housekeeping. Afternoon ride into
nearby, lakeside town of Gérardmer. Very pleasant forested, countryside around
here, with pretty chalet type houses. Lots of walks and cycle rides, with
skiing in the winter ...
... us to a trip on a ferry across the lake, which was a nice surprise! France is always good, feels close to home and we've missed their baking. We're at a small site run by 'Stan' just south of Nancy.

When you watch it on TV all you watch is the coverage ...
... finished it by watching the World Cup Final on the big screen in the city square of Gueberschwiihr. The town near the German board was showing its obvious support for their local neighbour. The pre match special was a parade to celebrate Bastille day. A handful of veterans rode down the cobbled streets in old army jeeps followed by the towns fire brigade. Berets were a plenty. The parade must have lasted at least five minutes....not a big place. Game time started and the crowd ...
