... prior to the 13th C, wars, fires and a hurricane taking their toll. It was spared the ravages of both the WW's, with its elaborate facade dating from the 16th C. The stained glass windows are magnificent. The traditional rose is just beautiful, while the windows depict scenes from the bible.
Its now dark by 6pm. A slow drive home through the fading countryside ignoring the scattered raindrops.
... signs about skin infections caused by waterbird parasites and stomach infections from the water!!! We were going to stay a few days and use the bike trails, but decided to move on in the morning.
As we walked back from our stroll at about 5pm it started to rain. It then hammered down until about 4am!!
... saw signs for Lyon which we naturally had to pass through as the highway then fed into one creating a horrid traffic jam. We did debate stopping here to visit the 3 Michelin Star chef we met in Venice but not being dressed for such an occasion and the fact the restaurant probably wasn't even open yet, we decided instead to sit in the jam and have a good old British moan!
... Elliott particularly enjoyed it! Our thirst quenched we moved on to a wander around the cathedral. Quite spectacular, Oliver not normally one for architecture was particularly keen with the camera. A short hop then took us to Troyes for the night......pizza and an early night......! Too tired to do Troyes any justice, we must leave it for another ...
... of speed about it. Late on this morning, I stumbled across a mother deer with a tiny doe trailing behind her. I was surprised they didn't sense my presence sooner, but once they did they were off like a shot across the fields. I managed to take a photo of them but it was only when they were far away enough in a field to risk looking back at where I might be.
All in all, it was a great day to be walking the Via Francigena.
