Hello Dear Readers
Hope all are well.
Finally I'm able to take a breath without coughing up my lungs and any other content which might be on offer. This bug really knocked the bejeezus out of me. But am rallying now and almost back to the real me!!! Scary thought I know!!
So, we left Lyon, took a few twisties and turns and ended up at a little place called Belleville. The tour delights for that day was a visit to a Snail and Frogs legs farm, or a visit to taste Bourjelais!!! Would you believe it??? Neither of us wanted to do either of those things. So we did the sensible thing and stayed on board ship. Except for an hour walk into the tiny town. The only shops open were either Bakeries with racks of freshly baked bread or the Patisseries. And don't get me started there. I could've dived into the windows and into the cakes on display and not ever surfaced again. They were simply magnificent. Ron has a photo to prove it.
The rest of the day was one of being quite lazy. However, I did finally finish off series 6 of Game of Thrones. Darn it!!!! So frustrated!!! Cersei is still alive!! That woman is Teflon coated Mercury!!! Truly!! What does it take to kill off that B**ch!!!
So! Rant over.
We set sail and came back past Lyon and headed South to finally end up at this little place called Touron. We didn't get to see much of it, because we were all herded onto buses by 09:30 and off to have a ride on a Vintage steam engine. Finally something I really can relate to. Fantastic to see, hear and watch this thing in operation. Apparently the engine was built in 1932 and is a very rare set up of a Mallet engine. Won't bore you with any more details but do have a couple of photos to put onto the web site when I can.
I think some people are getting a little travel weary because there have been a couple of occasions when I've just uttered a word or two as advice/support/assistance and had my head majorly bitten off. So all of that goes out the window now and am keeping company with myself a hell of a lot. Not mixing with people for a while might also help. At this stage, am just a little over other people.
Anyhoo............Take care all
Bryan and Ron
