The small town of Beaune! This city was a very nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Paris and Versailles. The charm of Beaune is that it is in the middle of wine country here in France. There are vineyards that stretch for miles around the borders of the town.
We started the day with a very tasty Beaune breakfast. Croque Madame for myself and ...
At 8am we stood in front of the most ornate house I've ever seen, the Palace of Versailles. Our goal was to see how the kings of the past ruled over the land.

The family history of Michelin Hats at this restaurant was huge.. the food was great and the atmosphere lovely. Back home by about 10.30 and ready for a rest!
