We are sailing today from Lyon to Tournon, there has been a lot of rain so the Rhone river is on Orange alert, which means that big ships cannot sail. The reason is that the Rhone has several locks, which are really really fascinating.

There were also cyclists on the road too so occasionally we got stuck behind them and then had to ...
... route down a disused railway line over a footbridge spanning the Ardeche river, through some lovely lanes filled with sunflowers and grape vines, then down a path along side of the river for a few km before popping us out in Roums. We had a lovely wander through the little village stopping for coffee, well it was supposed to be coffee but it was sooooo hot it turned into beer ;-). Decided to ...
