... others. We headed out to do our tour of the River Seine. Toaster wasn't working at breakfast but they had pancakes but nothing to really have with them. The roads seemed quieter presumably because it is Sunday. There are few boat tour operators and the boat we were on was one of the more modern. The cruise lasts 1 hour 20 to do the circuit but like the buses you can Hop on Hop off at one of the eight stops. No commentary which was quite good - some of the other boats ...

... the beautiful rose wines famous in Provence. We drove to a tiny town called Callas and had a delicious formula dinner of salad, lamb and lemon sorbet for desert. Day7: The narrow streets continued for the next 150 km of our journey. Narrow mountain roads winding through the Verdun Gorge. Amazing how people drive here. Fast and impatient on roads so narrow two cars barely fit through. We came across the most beautiful lake ...
