So, for you, meallanmouse, I have posted the photos of the baker in Verdun les Doubs at work on the Feast of St Honore. I am just sorry that you cannot smell the freshly-baked bread but I hope the pics cheer you up a little.
witch_wolf this just about captures the awesome nature of the 'barrage' (weir) at Gray.
For those interested in the first waterway of the cruise (The Saone), the photos begin here, and run to 2 pages.
More pics tomorrow.
