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.

Well, the purpose of the drive and visit to Millau was to see the "Viaduc" up close and we certainly did that today. (Tuesday).
We pointed the Captur in the direction of Montpellier thinking that would take us across THE bridge, but Mr GPS was being kind to us, and took us away from the toll station.
