We were on the road before 08:30 again this morning - it was a little chilly but it wasn't long before we were climbing out of the Loue valley so that warmed us up. The ride towards Besancon was along a fairly ordinary French 'D' road with moderate levels of traffic until we were a few miles away when we left the beaten track for my devious quiet approach to the busy town. This route worked pretty well bringing us in alongside the river Doubs but there ...
... sight seeing, a good lunch, and working like mad on the wifi under the shade of the trees in the park near the tourist office.
We walked all along the main street with its shops, past an old religious building that is now a theater, past the former Jesuit building that is now a College, meandering up and down a few side streets, past the place and park with the Diderot statue, down to the Cathedral St Mammes and inside for a long, quiet and blissfully ...

We felt like stopping and staying around this area to visit but we have appointments with our friends, so we'll just have to come back here without the caravan and a small tent than we would be here in 5 driving. At 5:30 pm we arrived at the house of Hubert and ...
