After breakfast Dave and I opted for an optional excursion which took us on the Ardeche Steam Train. We enjoyed a scenic ride along the Ardeche Mountains.

There is a fault with one of the bow thrusters and divers have to be brought up from Marseilles to deal with what is thought to be a snagged prop. Anyway we are off on our tour of Viviers which is another small medieval town of 4000 in the Ardeche region. It is also the smallest French town to have a cathedral and the new bishop was installed on Saturday. We walked around ...
