After leaving Beaune on Thursday we headed off to rejoin the Eurovelo 6 route that we had deviated from to vIsit the Burgundy wine area. Rather than backtrack down The Vineyard Way to Santenay, we opted to cut the corner from Chagny and rejoin the route at Pouilly-sur-Saone, however on arriving there found there was no way across the river to the …

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

... path in front of me. It was also quite tricky to keep my balance at times, which resulted in my walking poles being called into service for the first time in the trip. Down below me, the river Loue carried last night's storm water through the valley with great ferocity and noise. By late morning, I finally reached its source, where a large hydroelectric plant has been built to harness energy from the raging waters.

The afternoon should ...

I tried to resist, but I'm glad I relented.

... now largely a thing of the past.

Another last thing: there's a terrible storm going on right now. It's interesting to view it from the safety and comfort of the panoramic windows of the hotel's restaurant and lounge area, and hopefully it will clear the skies in readiness for a much longer walking day than today.

Late postcript: the maître d' did me a deal and so I ate in the hotel restaurant after all. I do hope the pate and bread last another day.

We happily settled into the Hôtel Vauban right on the river in the old town for 3 nights through a spell of rainy weather from Friday, June 27 to Monday June 30.

    We love this hotel! Lovely staff who kindly gave us a room upgrade to celebrate our anniversary. Fantastic location in the centre of Besancon. It is in an old building that ha been tastefully refurbished and everything is clean and fresh. Lovely courtyard with attractive garden, climbing roses and lots of seating for relaxing in the sunshine by the sound of the running water of the water feature.
