We are both so tired from our days exploits. The Viaduct is incredible to look upon. It is an engineering marvel and once the sign off for the project occurred took relatively little time to be constructed. However it was over thirty years in the planning, design and construction prior to being completed. We got to drive over it and now I can say I have been there done ...
... The Chateau de Creissels was so good for dinner on Monday night, we decided to "eat in" again.
