Down the Soane to Lyon

As I write we are moored in Lyon, What a friendly city.
We are just over two weeks out from Corre and into cruise mode, we have traveled the navigable length of the Soane river to where it joins the river Rhone, which runs down from Switzerland and all the way down to the Mediterranean (look it up on Google maps) Here we will turn around and head back upstream, Although the Med is only four days cruising down river from here, that trip is for another season.

Approaching St Albin tunnel, just a few Kms down from Corre.

An overnight stop in the sleepy village of Ray sur Soane.

A cool spot, Summer has kicked in.

We approach Lyon, the Basilica dominates the skyline

The Romans left their mark on Lyon 

The interior of Lyon Basilica, magnificent!

Architecture in Lyon, a more Mediterranean style.  

Having located a secure marina berth for Antiope, Annie and I will fly up to England from here for 10 days, to catch up with folk we missed last year.

Go, team NZ. 

Cheers Charles and Annie
