So, the rain came, but we were dry! We set out this morning to find a small museum on the history of life in Cevennes National Park. En route we passed a dairy where Le plat du jour was a tasting plate of 7 cheeses all made on site. They had to be eaten in a certain order - softest to hardest. We shared one plate with bread and a small pot of jam (for the girls - although they tried the cheese!) it was good! We went on to find the cute ...

... valleys. Your driving at 130Kph but sometimes the curves are that sharp that they have to lower the speed to 70Kph. And then there is the Viaduct of Millau the worlds highest vehicle bridge. It spans across the river Tarn and has seven pylons. The tallest pylon is taller than the Eiffel Tower. Some days the bridge is even above the clouds or the fog.
