... I don't want to sound too confident here, but I think Josh and I have finally become quite sufficient in using public transit here in Paris. I love how efficient the trains are! I have yet to see any train or bus run behind schedule.
Now it's time to relax with a glass of wine, and plan out our day for tomorrow. Only one day left in Paris before we head to Beaune! We have to make the most of it!
It rains a lot overnight last night and it's still raining in the morning, but being the men we are Richard and I head out for a 10km run at 8.30 this morning, the rain does begin to stop after a while as well. Back in camp we have the usual baguettes and croissants for our breakfast, the we head out with the Mitton's for a bike ride to vernal along the cycle trail that goes the woods, it's true to say at this cycle path is better than most roads ...
... controlled, and it really is interesting. Or at least I think so.
Seriously, we all enjoyed seeing the story of Edward, Harold, William, and the betrayal, death, and destruction that accompanied their lives. Beheaded men, cut up horses, pillaged villages - it's a graphic novel on cloth!

... against people like Charlotte Dujardin from the UK, who was the eventual winner. I actually preferred the performance of the second rider from Germany, but it is the judges choice as I have learnt over the years. And there were six judges in this case.
We made sure we picked up some fresh baguettes and cheese to make rolls for the next day and then made our way back to Bayeux to get ourselves organised for our early start.
... get an audio guide which talks you through each panel and the tapestry is set out along two long curves - quite long ... and very good!. The Catherdal in Bayeaux is truly beautiful as well.
We then got to our accommodation.... but more of that in a minute...
We took the optional extra and bused over for a look at Hitler's Atlantic wall; gun batteries - very eerie, Then we went to Arromanches... a seaside resort ...
