Monday 7 October Chalons en Champagne

Monday, October 7th, 2013

I had to do some retakes of the pictures I had taken in the Cathedral. And the sun had comer out to give more light on the stained glass. By the time I was done with the blog it was mid afternoon.  I explored more of the city of Reims. It turned out to be a delightful stop. I stayed the Sunday night in Reims and took off early this morning. It was very foggy and It was difficult to make out the red/green lights on the locks. But after the fog burnt off at around 11 a.m. it was once again sunny and warm. Beautiful countryside.

I stopped in Chalons en Champagne/sur le Marne at 4.30 p.m. there is not much beyond here in the way of a spot to spend the night. I traveled through 18 locks, a 2.8 k.m. tunnel and did 51 k.m. This is also a fair sized town and quite attractive with large parks and also an old Gothic church.
