Bree – me by the gorgeous fountain. Place Antonin Poncet

 

It was fascinating watching the young children play in the fountains.  We could have watched them for hours.

The pools were crowded.  What else does one do on a hot day.  Wander around doing touristy things or going for a swim.  We did the tourist things. Im so glad we did.  You can swim anyday.

Stunning  – Place Antonin Poncet

Lyon is such a pretty city.  Muriel and I wandered around probably for about 3 or more hours.  By the time we arrived back at the ship we were hot, tired and thirsty. After the scare of Muriel bag contents being stolen we didn’t stop much until we got to the Place Antonin Poncet.  Such a beautiful and calming place.

Our ship was  mored opposite the Lyon University.    There is so much more of Lyon that we didn’t see so one day I hope that we get to go back and do this place the justice it deserves.

We arrived back to the ship and enjoyed a cool drink of water and then a couple of wines.  Tonight would be our last night on this ship.  In the morning we would be heading to Paris for the next part of our holiday.  Time for a lay down before our farewell dinner.

Its been an amazing trip so far and so much more to share with you.

      1. Nah not being silly. I wish we were traveling right now. When I got back I was so miserable and in pain with my knee that writing (you would think being laid up a lot of writing would have been done) and then when I wanted to write the internet was playing up.
